Project description

The distribution and extensive organisation of the Roman provincial assemblies suggest that their influence extended beyond institutional or political aspects. I suppose they formed powerful platforms for the development of provincial networks, resulting in stronger contacts between the cities participating in the assembly and people from there. I focus on the socio-economic aspects of these meetings.
