...and the Rhodian Sea Law , the Ecloga constituted a corpus of secular law unrivaled until the end of the 9th C. Under the Macedonian dynasty, the Ecloga was replaced, in a move to reappropriate Justinianic law, by the Epanagoge ; the latter, however, remained strongly indebted in content and form to the Ecloga , as did the Prochiron , issued somewhat later, whose polemic, as Schminck has shown ( Rechtsbüchern 64f), was directed not against the Ecloga but against the Epanagoge . The continuing popularity of the Ecloga is attested by the existence of...

... Aucta , an adaptation of the Ecloga . Designated in one MS as the “second Eklogadion ,” it probably antedates the Macedonian period. As far as can be determined from the indirect ( Ecloga privata aucta ) or fragmentary transmission, the author borrowed the structure and style of the Ecloga and copied some of its chapters verbatim, but revised, replaced, or expanded the rest. The changes are characterized by a renewed rapprochement with Justinianic law; the mutilation punishments of the Ecloga are eliminated, with the exception of castration for...
