Summary

The administration and management of sea ports under the Roman Empire remain a puzzling mystery. In a fundamental paper, George Houston reached at least two essential conclusions. Both are worth quoting: we are justified in concluding that necessary work in these ports – for example, building of and repair to breakwaters and docks, provision of storage facilities, and regulation of commercial activities – was ordinarily accomplished through a combination of Imperial subvention, local administration, and private initiative.
