Source: Wikipedia

Roman emperors Arcadius and Honorius issue a new law banning idolators from willing property to anyone outside their family. This sort of restriction is designed to benefit orthodox Christianity and orthodox Christians.

The law states:

"If any persons have defiled themselves with the impious superstition of idolatry when they were Christians, they shall incur the penalty of not having the power to make a testament for the benefit of extraneous persons [i.e., anyone outside the immediately family - parents, siblings, children, grandchildren]" [CTh 16.7.6]
