As the clearest “ethnic” statement to be found in any early Germanic legislation, it deserves quotation: It has been accepted and agreed among the Franks and their leaders [proceribus] that for the sake of keeping peace among themselves, all intensified dispute [incrementa rixarum] should be curtailed, so that just as they stand out among their neighbours for the strength of their arm, so they may also excel them in authority of law, and thus put an end to criminal behaviour [sumerent criminalis actio terminum] [.

If anyone kill a Roman tributary [tributarium] [. ] let him be liable for [. ] sixty-two and a half solidi. 33 The first thing these clauses make clear is that a Frank, whatever else he or she was, was not a Roman.
