Abstract: The “gifts” to a dowry can be divided into three groups of cases. Their explanation should show: 1.) that the donation was in the classical Roman law incompatible with the donor’s right of recovery (condictio); 2.) that a gratuitous transaction was treated as a datio ob rem if the “donor” had the condictio in the event that the condition (modus) will not be fulfilled; and 3.) that it was not decisive for the assessment of the legal transaction as a gift in whose interest the fulfilment of the condition (modus) was.

Key Words: Roman Law; donation; Providing of a Dowry; modus; condictio ob rem; Features of a Gift; dos profecticia; dos adventicia.
