Abstract

This is an essay on commercial exchange in ancient Roma, in particular during the Republican age. This meant to find the salient features of the markets and the international relations of antiquity. The research gives the idea of a complex society in which the logic of profit for consumption coexisted with more specific entrepreneurial urgencies. Evidences on commercial relations testify, since business network extending well beyond the borders of Rome. From this point of view the old question of the existence or not of a "Roman commercial law" must be resolved within the history of commercial relationships, their motives, their actors.
