Nomos Stratiotikos

   A collection of about 55 penal and disciplinary laws for soldiers. Although of uncertain date, they must have been compiled between the sixth and mid-eighth centuries for some laws derive from the Corpus Juris Civilis (q.v.), some apparently from the Strategikon of Maurice (q.v.), still others from later texts. The Nomos Stratiotikos (Soldier's Law) is found appended to the Ecloga, the Farmer's Law, and Rhodian Sea Law (qq.v.).
