- Rome was a unique city in antiquity with a population of one million people from late first century BC through the first two centuries AD... This paper aims to reconstruct and suggest many of the aspects of Roman dock workers including their numbers, hiring practices, and unloading practices. The role of harbor capacity will also be reviewed to understand Rome's ability to safely import several hundred thousand tons and prevent famine.
