PEEFACE
This
book
attempts
to
consider
various
phases
in
the
economic
and
social
life
of
Ancient
Rome;
such
as
has
not
been
treated,
except
incidentally,
in
any
English
work,
nor
in
any
French
or
German
work
from
precisely
the
same
standpoint
;
a
fact
which
gives
justification
for
the
present
essay.
The
purpose
is
to
consider
the
influence
of
money
and
of
the
commercial
spirit
throughout
the
period
of
Eoman
greatness.
Sometimes
a
liberal
interpretation
has
been
given
to
the
term
"Money
Power,"
and
certain
subjects
have
been
discussednot
at
first
sight
closely
connected
with
public
finance
or
private
industry
and
commerce.
Tet
the
idea
thatthe
Romans
owed
much,
both
of
their
greatness
and
of
their
ultimate
failure,
to
the
supreme
estimate
they
put
upon
wealth
and
its
concomitants
has
never
been
lost
from
view.
This
essay
makes
no
claim
to
exhaustive
or
original
learning.
The
evidence
of
the
ancient
authors,
supple-
mentedby
much
testimony
from
the
great
Corpus
In-
scriptionum
Latinarum,
is
however
carefully
used,
and
from
what
is
possiblya
somewhat
new
point
of
departure.
Tet
modern
investigators
on
one
point
or
another
have
put
the
author
under
a
greatdebt
Friedlaender,
Grupp,
Mommsen,
Marquardt,
Voigt,
Schiller,
Seeck,

feld,
Schanz,
Bloch,
Boissier,

Arnold,
Dill
and
many
more,
