In ‘‘inscriptions’’ such as these, the barrier between ‘‘literature’’ and ‘‘documents’’ essentially dissolves, and we are forcibly reminded that all documents, even the most apparently simple (which these are decidedly not), are constructs with a logic and rhetoric of their own. But that reﬂection brings us back to the central point of the observations in this prologue. That is to say that what we are pleased to call ‘‘ancient history’’ is meaningful and intelligible to us precisely because it is so recent, and because we are in every sense so close to it.
M. Frayn, ‘‘Wild and Cultivated Plants: A Note on the Peasant Economy of Ancient Italy,’’ JRS (): ; Subsistence Farming in Roman Italy (); Sheep-Rearing and the Wool Trade in Italy during the Roman Period (). . Galen, On the Properties of Foodstuﬀs I–III (De alimentorum facultatibus), Opera, ed. Kühn, VI, – (). See V. Nutton, ‘‘Galen and the Traveller’s Fare,’’ in J. Wilkins, D. Harvey, and M. , Food in Antiquity (), . 5 But in fact we should not be wary of using the Natural History also as just that, as an endless series of sidelights on human interaction with and exploitation of, the varied components of the natural world, whether organic (plants, animals, and ﬁsh) or inorganic, which means above all metals and stone, as it took place in the classical world.
Was to call ‘‘tota Italia’’—is still best grasped through local copies of leges passed by the people in Rome, or, in the case of the Tabula Heracleensis, of a local compilation, then inscribed, of sections from diﬀerent laws passed in Rome. 43 With the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, we suddenly enter a world where, in a certain sense, our evidence is transformed in scale and in the richness of the meanings which it conveys. This is true, clearly enough, of literature, both Latin and Greek; of the explosion of ‘‘the epigraphic habit,’’ also in both Latin and Greek; and, as mentioned earlier, of the huge range of local coins mirroring the predominance of the distant and largely unseen emperor.
