Building Mid-Republican Rome

Labor, Architecture, and the Urban Economy

Seth Bernard

  • Incorporates the Mid-Republic into the study of Roman economic history by insisting that many of the institutional structures of the later Roman economy emerged for the first time in this period

  • Presents a new way to model and contextualize the labor costs of Mid-Republican architecture
