FREE Due to Pages: Abstract. For the Roman empire the control of its metal and marble resources was of high significance: marble was central to the representation of imperial wealth and power and the uninhibited access to metal vital for the economic and political survival of the empire.

This book aims to provide a detailed survey of the organizational measures devised for the extraction of metals and marbles and is restricted to mines and quarries under imperial control. Mons Porphyrites, in the heart of the Red Sea mountains which dominate the Eastern Desert of Egypt, was the only source of imperial porphyry known to the ancient world.

The quarries seem to have been worked from the Tiberian period until the early fifth century AD. A five-year programme of investigation of the quarries was undertaken between and and the first volume on the topography.

HIRT, IMPERIAL MINES AND QUARRIES IN THE ROMAN WORLD. ORGANIZATIONAL ASPECTS 27 BC–AD Roman army officers and soldiers are documented in varying functions at imperial mines and quarries.

From inscribed stone monuments set up at quarries and from labels on quarried blocks it emerges that centurions were transfered across the whole empire to take charge of particular quarrying operations. This chapter explores these particular practices and shines a light on the role the emperor.

The concluding chapter unites the main observations made throughout the study: It traces the possible development and differentiation of procuratorial posts; the probable responsibilities of these officials regarding the management of marble and metal resources under imperial control; the function of the Roman army in accessing and opening mining and quarrying zones; the varying systems in.
