Sample text

Only once, in 342 (above), do we ever hear of Romans turning against their own state and never in their early history did a dissatisfied group make common cause with an enemy. The ability and willingness to compromise meant that the Romans themselves did not have to face the same stasis as other peoples. Compromise can be seen as one of the central themes of early Roman history, and was furthermore a principal reason behind the Republic’s military success. There is nothing in the early history of Rome that shows the city to be predestined to become an imperial capital.

A small number of plebeians had managed to become military tribunes with supreme authority, but by and large generalships were confined to the patriciate. What also drove the issue forward was that from about 375 the plunder coming into Rome from warfare was regularly increasing. This freed the wealthy from the need to run their estates for profit and allowed them to concentrate more on public and political life. indd 20 12/2/2010 9:23:56 PM The Rise of Rome to 264 21 The demand of the plebeians for access to the highest offices came to a head in the early 360s, as the senate and the concilium plebis frequently clashed, at times even violently.

He himself gives a commentary on the text. g. 7 Even if the introductory formula customary in Carthaginian pacts, known to us, for example, from the alliance concluded between Philip V of Macedonia and Hannibal in 215,8 is missing, this agreement seems unmistakably to have been drafted by Carthage. This appears particularly clearly from the first half of Polybius’ text, which contains the conditions imposed on Rome regarding the limits of navigation along the coast (see particularly the much-discussed Kalon Aktoterion,9 perhaps not its first mention in this role), measures to be taken in the case of an involuntary breach of the limits, and restricted access and permission to trade in Carthage itself as well as North Africa, Sardinia, and Sicily, which Carthage indubitably considered its own possession.
