Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The problem of provisioning Rome, primarily a residential
urban center, is the focus of this book. Drawing on secondary sources (especially
inscriptions from Roman tombs, buildings and other remains collected in the Corpus
Inscriptionum Latinarum) Loane discusses trade, manufacturing activities, and commercial
activities. The focus is on the city itself and there are extensive materials on the
goods in circulation, their sources and the economic organization by which they were
handled. Other aspects of Roman culture are incidental and knowledge about these on the
part of the reader is frequently assumed. Bibliographic footnotes are found at the
bottom of text pages.
