About this product
- DescriptionAsia Mir under Rome was one of the wealthiest and most developed parts of the Empire, but there have been few modern studies of its ecomics. The twelve papers in this book, by an international team of scholars, work from literary texts, inscriptions, coinage and archaeology. They study the direct impact of Roman rule; the organisation of large agricultural estates; changing patterns of olive production; threats to rural prosperity from pests and the animal world; inter-regional trade in the Black Sea; the significance of civic market buildings; the ecomic role of temples and sanctuaries; the contribution of private benefactors to civic finances; and, monetization in the third century AD, and the effect of transitory populations on local ecomic activity.
