Bnsinea Ufa in Ancient Rome
Of manufactories on a large scale there were
few in Home, thongh some of the most promi
nent nobles owned factories in Italy and the
provinces. Even the emperors did not dis
dain to be interested in ventures of this tind,
M. Anrclins inherited from his mother im
mense bnck-factones ; and even now bricks
are found bearing the name of Cru Dotnitius
inims, tuo .bmpcror s great grandfather by
adoption. Another Emperor, Pertinax, for
three years conducted a felt factory in Lien.
ria. As senators were forbidden to cngago in
trade, tho Emperor bad reconrso to tho usual
expedient to baffle tho law. He set in busi
ness trusty frecdmen and slaves who disposed
oi ins mauuiaciurcs. utiicr senators owned
potteries or worked mines And ouarrics.
But though great quantities of merchandise
wcro supplied by thceo factories, and tho finer
taoncs were imported ready-raado from the
East, most manufactured articles were pro-
aucea on a small scale in tho city itsolf. It
was trnh a bee-hivo of artisans and median
ics. Bakers, tailors, shoemakers, carpenters,
smiths, dyers, tanners, fullers, potters, masons,
carvers, and a host of others here busily plied
meiriraacs ana earned a modest livelihood,
Of shoemakers there were five or six varieties.
Even the sculptor restricted himself to one
branch of his art. There wcro artists who
produced only Genii or Victories nay, sorao
wnosc sole occupation was to insert eves into
statues mado by others. Two statues havo
been found in which the bodies were exact
duplicates, thouclt ono was surmounted bv
the head of Augustus, the other by that of
Agnppa. bome sculptors, therefore, kept on
hand a supply of ready-made bodies, for
which heads were made to order. Of course,
tho prico of work bo produced was very low,
and a respectable life-sized statue of marble,
or bronze could begot for 26 to 31, at a
time wlicn from 2,000 to 6,000 was paid for
a Phidias or Scopas.
Jfo doubt many of the mechanics and trades
men of Bomo were slaves ; but that a laro
number were free citizens must be inferred
from tho number and importance of their col
Icgia, or guilds. Their establishment reaches
back into hoary antiquity, for they arc said to
have been founded by Numa Pempilius. They
were associations with corporate rights, whoso
aim was not ouly to further tho business
interests of their members, but also to provide
uicm wim concemai amusements. ..Not on v
each trade bad its guild, but sometimes each
branch of a trade. For instance, there were
not only goldsmith and silversmith guilds, but
aiso a ruua ot nncmakcrs. Of their influence
on business life wo have no detailed know.
