Cærite Franchise (The)

.

The franchise of a Roman subject in a præfecture. These subjects had the right of self-government, and were registered by the Roman censor as tax-payers; but they enjoyed none of the privileges of a Roman citizen. Cærē was the first community placed in this dependent position, whence the term Cærite franchise.
