Contentus – this Latin term literally means “satisfied”. For example, in the legal practice the goal of a litigation procedure (and eventually the execution procedure, performed by the bailiff against the debtor’s assets) is to help the creditor to collect their money pursued from the debtor, i.e. to satisfy the creditor.
