Sometime between ages 15-17 a Roman boy "came of age", hung up his bullae, donned the toga virilis and was registered on the roll of Roman citizens.  But, if his father was still alive, didn't the father legally control any property the son might possess under patria potestas?  In what property class did the censors register a son who's father still lived?  Was there some legal way for the son of a living senator or equestrian father to hold property so as to be registered in the centuries of equites or the iuniores of the First Class?
