Abstract

This paper traces two competing understandings of the nature of citizenship in the Roman world, as they appear in P.Giss. 40, the papyrus which preserves the text of the Constitutio Antoniniana as well as two other edicts. I argue that state/official understandings of the nature of universal citizenship were difficult to impose, because they met with powerful processes of translation or transformation at the local level.
