Description

This book considers the influence of money and of the commercial spirit throughout the period of Roman greatness. The idea that the Romans owed much, both of their greatness and of their ultimate failure, to the supreme estimate they put upon wealth and its concomitants has never been lost from view. The work makes plain that within the Roman world, amid which Cicero thundered his eloquence, Caesar led his legions, and Nero indulged his passions, there was another world, less voluptuous and glittering, less famous in history, but no less real and important to the men of the day - the realm of the great god Lucre. At the time of original publication in 1910, William Stearns Davis was Professor of Ancient History, University of Minnesota.
