Städtische Eliten im römischen Makedonien
Untersuchungen zur Formierung und Struktur
Using the Roman province of Macedonia as an example, this work presents a critical analysis of the generally held opinion among social historians that the society of the Roman Empire was based on a class system. An analysis of the sources, mostly inscriptions, reveals that – in contrast to the situation elsewhere in the Empire – here there is no evidence for a class-based elite, and that more attention must be paid to regional variations in the structure of society than has been the case.
