This paper attempts to examine some first questions related to the use of Byzantine law in the codes that emerged during the 19th century in South-Eastern Europe. It focuses on the introductory acts to the codes of Moldavie (1817) and Valachie (1818) and an episode related to the involvement of Jeremy Bentham in the drafting of a Greek code during the Greek independence war in the period 1821-1824. The ideological parameter of Byzantine law remains evident.
