Cohn explains how Roman imperial precedent was also cited by the early Indian judiciary as providing the models for governing India. To honour this self-image, partaking of the fascination of his age with all things imperial and Roman, Jones's supporters placed a statute of him in a toga in St Paul's Cathedral, with the Institutes of the Law of Manu under
