First published in 1926, as the second edition of a 1924 original,
this book provides an outline of Roman economic life during the
first two centuries of the Empire. Each chapter focuses on a
different section of the Roman sphere of influence, including trade
routes to China and India, the goods native to various areas, and
the means by which they communicated and traded with Rome.
Charlesworth uses a wide range of ancient sources, from poetry to
Vitruvius and the Bible, to illuminate this crucial aspect of Roman
civilisation. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest
in ancient trade and the history of ancient economics.
