The notion of 'corruption' in antiquity is extremely complex. It may refer to practices and concepts that are as divergent as the historical contexts and the legal systems where these concepts appear. Its conceptualisation may also depend on the ideological commitment of the author who describes these practices and concepts, as well as on the context of communication of his account. Indeed, texts are the result of an act of communication that occurs in a specific context.
