La Annona y la política agraria durante el Alto Imperio romano

Gustavo Sanz Palomera


A study of the food supply of the Roman army and the local populations. Food provision, princAally wheat, was in the hands of an institution known as Annona. This institution mainly oversaw the adequate supply of food supplies for the city of Rome (annona civica) and the army (annona militaris). Both were the beneficiaries of the redistribution system promoted by the emperors in terms of agrarian policy.
