This paper analyzes the notion of arbiter in Roman law. Based on the legal and literary sources of Roman law, the study briefly describes the most important features of the legal institution of arbiter. The essay emphasises that the notion of arbiter has at least two different meanings in Roman law. On the one hand, an arbiter could describe an expert judge who had special knowledge in a particular field and was entitled to decide the special debate of the parties, wherein the debate did not have a purely legal nature but could concern other issues as well.

The study also references some important elements of the subsequent fate of the Roman notion of arbiter.
