Building Mid-Republican Rome

Seth Bernard

Oxford University Press

This chapter details the formation of Republican Rome’s urban supply chains. As much of the city’s material even in later periods derived from Italy, the geography of supply emphasizes the Mid-Republican period, when the first stages of imperial conquest allowed Roman access to Italian quarries, forests, mines, and so forth. This discussion also serves to introduce various building materials referred to throughout the volume. Alongside reviewing the evidence for the supplies of stone, terracotta, metal, and wood to urban construction, the chapter considers the role of the Republican state in acquiring and working territories that provided such resources.

Keywords:   Building material, supply chain, tuff, quarries, timber, tile
