Soldiers
Soldiers were recruited from those in need of land, and those that obliged, were promised land.
Trade
Everything relied on agriculture and trade. Sailors would ship surpluses across the Mediterranean, along with trading with China and India. Roads were built my military soldiers to give the Roman Empire access to Persia and Southern Russia. Most involved with trade were farmers and herders.
Roman Slaves
Slavery was very common in Rome during these times. Slaves represented 1/3 of the total population, the highest in Roman history. The majority of slaves were civilians dominated by Roman armies. Slaves were deemed property of their owners; therefore, they could be punished, traded, sold, or even set free. All decisions were left in the hands of the slave masters.
Gladiators
The gladiator games were punishment for mainly criminals who’d lost all citizenship rights, slaves, and war prisoners. Others would volunteer themselves by swearing themselves in to a gladiatorial troupe. They would do this in hopes of being respected in such a manner as the Roman soldiers were.
