Probability boxes are among the most simple and popular models used in imprecise probability theory, and many practical results concerning them exist in the literature. Nevertheless, little attention has been paid to their formal characterisation in the setting of Walley's behavioural theory of imprecise probabilities. This paper tries to remedy this situation by formalising, generalising and extending existing results as well as by giving new ones, within Walley's framework.
