Roman emperors owned properties all over the provinces of the Roman empire, which are mainly attested in Africa, Asia or Egypt, and less known in other provinces.

Abstract

Roman emperors owned properties all over the provinces of the Roman empire, which are mainly attested in Africa, Asia or Egypt, and less known in other provinces. By combining a solid survey of literary, epigraphic, and archaeological sources, this work tracks down imperial properties in Gallia Narbonensis. The evidence in this province for the property of Annia Fundania Faustina, a relative of Antoninus Pius, whose family was originally from Nîmes, would suggest the importance that family properties might have had in the symbolic making of imperial dynasty.
