Post quinquenni tempus emensum unus prior e patronis pistorum otio et quiete donetur, ita ut ei qui sequitur officinam cum animalibus servis molis fundis dotalibus, pistrinorum postremo omnem enthecam tradat adque consignet.
(Codex Theodosianus 14.3.7)

After a period of five years has passed, the chief patron of the guild of pistores should be given rest and leisure, so long as he hands over and assigns to his successor the shop with its animals, slaves, mills, and the farms belonging to the endowment—in short all the equipent of bread making. (tr. Christopher Francese)
