Auteur: Jean Andreau Andreau Jean. Uitgever: Cambridge University Press. Samenvatting In the first century BC lending and borrowing by the senators was the talk of Rome and even provoked political crises.
During this same period, the state tax-farmers were handling enormous sums and exploiting the provinces of the Empire. Until now no book has presented a synthetic view of Roman banking and financial life as a whole, from the time of the appearance of the first bankers' shops in the Forum between and BC down to the end of the Principate in AD Professor Andreau writes of the business deals of the elite and the professional bankers and also of the interventions of the state. To what extent did the spirit of profit and enterprise predominate over the traditional values of the city of Rome? And what economic role did these financiers play?
How should we compare that role to that of their counterparts in later periods.

Recensie s ' Allen Kerkeslager, Saint Joseph's University With Banking and Business in the Roman World Andreau, who is working on a comprehensive history of banking from antiquity through the medieval period, has given us an excellent, wieldy introduction to the financial activities of the Roman Republic and the first three hundred years of the Empire.

And while he was mentioned, there was much less reference to him than I had hoped. I realize this means I should probably read the author's book about Caecilius speci So Anyway, argentarii worked on small-scale things relatively , which the elite and their agents worked on large-scale things.
One of their chief things seems to have been to act as intermediaries at auctions, where the argentarius paid the seller immediately on behalf of the buyers, and then advanced the buyers credit to pay off what they have bought on a term of several months to a year. They also of course did money-changing. Anyway, the book is readable, but more narrow in focus than I would've thought, given the title. There's lots of uncertainties, but Andreau does a good job at delimiting what is consensus from what is his personal opinion and attributing various opinions to their proponents.
He also engages with the modernist v. View Larger Image.
