9.Si quis duobus bona fide serviat, utrique adquiret, sed singulis in re sua. Quod autem in re alterius est, utrum pro parte ei cui bona fide servit, an vero ei debeat adquirere totum ex cujus re est, videamus. Quam speciem Scævola quoque tractat libro secundo quæstionum: ait enim, si alienus servus duobus bona fide serviat et ex unius eorum re adquirat, rationem facere, ut ei dumtaxat in solidum adquirat. Sed si adjiciat ejus nomen ex cujus re stipulatur, nec dubitandum esse ait, quin ei soli adquiratur, quia et si ex re ipsius stipularetur alteri ex domiuis nominatim stipulando solidum ei adquiret, et in inferioribus probat, ut, quamvis non nominatim nec jussu meo, ex re tamen mea stipulatus sit, cum pluribus bona fide servirei, mihi soli adquirat. Nam et illud receptum est ut quotiens communis servus omnibus adquirere non potest ei soli cum adquirere cui potest.
