Bava Metzia 2: It’s Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine, Mine!

An introduction to Bava Metzia, and to the first chapter. Plus, the famous first mishnah – with 2 people laying apparently equal claim to a found object. Or two are riding on an animal and both claim ownership of the animal. They both swear and divide the item – to the extent possible, when there’s no other way to ascertain the accuracy of each’s claim.
