Sayfa 290 - ... everything, in a word, that comes under the control of the Roman government : and in all these the people at large are engaged; so that there is scarcely a man, so to speak, who is not interested either as a contractor or as being employed in the works. For some purchase the contracts from the censors...
Sayfa 120 - It is safe to say that the idea of universal power never occurred to any Roman before the Punic war. He was accustomed to a world of petty city-states which owned a few square miles outside their walls and did not ask for more. If, therefore, we hope to understand the groping, stumbling, accidental expansion of Rome, we must rid ourselves of anachronistic generalizations and "remote causes...
Sayfa 290 - For some purchase the contracts from the censors for themselves; and others go partners with them; while others again go security for these contractors, or actually pledge their property to the treasury for them. Now over all these transactions the Senate has absolute control. It can grant an extension of time; and in case of unforeseen accident can relieve the contractors from a portion of their obligation, or release them from it altogether, if they are absolutely unable to fulfil it. And there...
Sayfa 290 - Italy for the repairs or construction of public buildings; there is also the collection of revenue from many rivers, harbours, gardens, mines, and land — everything in a word that comes under the control of the Roman government; and in all these the people at large are engaged; so that there is scarcely a man, so to speak, who is not interested either as a contractor or as being employed in the works. For some...
Sayfa 147 - Doubtless the senators who were experienced in diplomacy wished to break away from the old restrictions. But the fact remained that for a thousand years the Romans had acted on the belief that an infraction of the ius fetiale would bring a curse upon the state. Nevertheless, the Macedonian problem was referred to the fetial priests, and they were apparently influenced by the new school. They decided to disregard the vital distinction between societas and amicitia and to extend, for the present occasion,...
Sayfa 9 - Frank concludes his account of this ancient and honorable institution with the remark that "the important point after all is the fact, established by the existence of this institution, that the Roman mos maiorum did not recognize the right of aggression, or the desire for more territory as just cause for war." 18 In the light of this very simple theory the expansion of Roman territory until it included the entire Italian peninsula is seen to be but a series of accidents that result from the purely...
Sayfa 289 - In reviewing the status of Roman commerce during the last two centuries of the republic, then, we have found that at first the Italians who lived near the Greek seaport towns of southern Italy were actively engaged in the Mediterranean trade. Roman citizens gained importance there only after 130, when they began to exploit their new province of Asia. These citizens, however, always lovers of terra firma, gradually drifted into capitalistic enterprises on land, leaving the freedmen of Oriental and...
Sayfa 159 - Nay, even after the games were over, in the extravagance of their joy, they nearly killed Flamininus by the exhibition of their gratitude. Some wanted to look him in the face and call him their preserver; others were eager to touch his hand; most threw garlands and fillets upon him, until between them they nearly crushed him to death.
Sayfa 155 - The Senate of Rome and Titus Quintus [Flamininus], proconsul and imperator, having conquered King Philip and the Macedonians in war, declare the following peoples free, without garrison, or tribute, in full enjoyment of the laws of their respective countries: namely, Corinthians, Phocians, Locrians, Euboeans, Achaeans of Phiotis, Magnesians, Thessalians, Perrhaebians.
Sayfa 21 - That the popular party had exercised a potential voice at an even earlier date is, curiously enough, admitted by our author in his discussion of the effects of the distribution of the Veian land in 395 BC He there writes: "The importance of this circumstance for the question of Roman Imperialism lies in the fact that in the future it was usually the democratic element at Rome which favored a policy of expansion.
