(p.163) 6 Measuring the Movement Economy
The Economy of Pompeii

Eric Poehler

Oxford University Press

A key issue in understanding Pompeii’s economy, and particularly investment, is the city’s urban topography: not all locations in the city were commercially attractive in the same way, or to the same degree, and understanding Pompeii’s commercial landscape, and the strategic choices made by investors at certain locations, requires a detailed knowledge, particularly of the way people moved through the city. Substantially refining earlier work by Laurence and Kaiser, this chapter by Eric Poehler discusses a new model of movement through the city, and one that gives a much more detailed insight into the economic potential of certain places—not only the expected major thoroughfares, but also some less well-known streets that emerge as busier than previously appreciated.
