(v) to free from bondage. Origin: a manu, from one's hand + emittere, to send away ? 'to send away from one's hand.' Slave owners usually manumitted a slave when he had become old and was therefore not useful to them any more. In ancient Rome, slaves could also secure their manumission by paying the price their owner had tagged on them. They were paid wages for their work, so it was possible for them to save the required sum over the years.
