Furtum tabularum
(103 words)

[German version]

A criminal offence that corresponds with modern obstruction of evidence and so implies a more or less definite obstruction of evidence in Roman civil procedure. Tabulae are written notes that served, e.g., to safeguard evidence; as such they belong to the evidence classified by Quintilian (instrumenta, Inst. 5,5,1ff.).
