Summary

This is the first book to arise from an interdisciplinary initiative, the Roman Mediterranean Ports project, which seeks a holistic understanding of early Imperial ports by addressing a range of key questions relating to their character, organization and roles.1 The geographical centrality of the Mediterranean to the Roman Empire, which was without precedent and has not been matched subsequently, helped enable its political integrity for well over 400 years. By the early first century AD, Rome had come to dominate all of the shores surrounding the Mediterranean, transforming its constituent seas into a unique maritime space. Interconnected commercial networks criss-crossed its many islands and micro-regions, enabling provincial communities to maintain intense commercial relationships with Rome at the centre of the mare nostrum, although debates continue to rage over their scale and the nature of their organization.2
