POMPEI DALLA CITTA SANNITICA ALLA COLONIA SILLANA [Extrait] : PER UN'INTERPRETAZIONE DEI DATI ARCHEOLOGICI / [Zevi, Fausto]

Publication : 1996 In : Les élites municipales de l'Italie péninsulaire des Gracques à Néron : actes de la table ronde de Clermont-Ferrand (28-30 novembre 1991) / sous la direction de Mireille Cébeillac-Gervasoni. Naples-RomeDescription : p. 125-138Langue : Italien. Auteur principal: Zevi, Fausto (1938-....) Résumé : This paper examines the public building programmes realized immediately after the installation of Sull'a veterans, interpreting them as an expression of the "duo genera civium" of which the population of Pompeii consisted after the colonial founding. The "old Pompeians" continued to live primarily in city houses, while tracts of land - mostly vineyards on the slopes of Vesuvius - were expropriated and assigned to the colonists. This situation esplains how P. Sulla, said to be involved in the conspiracy of Catiline, had fomented discord between the two groups, seeding the support not of the colonists as one would expect, but of the old Pompeians: they represented the absolute majority and - concentrated as they were within the town walls - were in a better position to take over the city..Sujets:politique -- élite -- vétéran -- colonie -- fondation de ville -- population -- domus -- peinture murale -- style pompéien -- archéologie Chrono:Antiquité romaine -- République romaine Lieux: Italie Anthroponymes: Sylla Mots libres: population urbaine -- population rurale -- assignation -- élite municipale .

This paper examines the public building programmes realized immediately after the installation of Sull'a veterans, interpreting them as an expression of the "duo genera civium" of which the population of Pompeii consisted after the colonial founding. The "old Pompeians" continued to live primarily in city houses, while tracts of land - mostly vineyards on the slopes of Vesuvius - were expropriated and assigned to the colonists. This situation esplains how P. Sulla, said to be involved in the conspiracy of Catiline, had fomented discord between the two groups, seeding the support not of the colonists as one would expect, but of the old Pompeians: they represented the absolute majority and - concentrated as they were within the town walls - were in a better position to take over the city.
