Abstract

This chapter documents the history of Naples from the late Roman Republic through the Imperial period. After the sack of Sulla and a period of instability during the later Civil Wars, the city settled into a pattern of prosperity and quietude broken only by the natural disasters of the first century CE, punctuated by the eruption of Vesuvius. Naples was privileged to continue operating on a superficially Greek model, as abundant epigraphic evidence indicates.
