Quantifying the Roman Economy

Roger Bagnall

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the criteria of definition of urban communities in Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt, the non-agricultural character of the regional capitals, rates of urbanization in relation to estimates of total population and growth over time. It suggests possible reasons for the fact that Roman Egypt had a greater number of larger urban centres and larger villages than Roman Italy.

Keywords:   Ptolemaic Egypt, Roman Egypt, population, urbanization, villages
