In many a Greek deed concluded in Hellenistic-Roman times, and concerning the transaction of rights with respect to immovables (buildings or land), was stipulated an important clause specifying eisodos kai exodos. This occurred in cases such as inheritance, sale, and the partition of buildings. In terms of such a clause one of the two contracting parties was guaranteed, among others, the right to use a path over the property of the other party. As far as houses were concerned, the path could lead, for example, through a gate or a door on a public road or even through another building belonging to a third party, so that the party receiving the benefit of the servitude could have access to and exit from his own property.
