8–9. Roman tradition tolerated and even encouraged violence in political and private disputes, and both the law and constitutional precedent recognized the use of force by private individuals…Moreover, it was reinforced by the Roman cult of expediency in matters where the physical coercion of people, whether legal or illegal, was involved. Lintott, Violence in Republican Rome, Oxford, OUP, 1968, p. 4. 2 Certain areas naturally favored crime; certain forms of society resisted civilization. Moorish and Arab nomads, Quinquegentanei, Garamantes, Bessi, Maratocupreni, Brisei, Cietae, or whatever tribe it might be, retained their traditional lawlessness, their inexpugnable haunts, ready at the first sign of weakness on the part of the government to launch their raids against farmhouses and cities.

Michael Crawford, ‘Money and exchange in the Roman world’, Journal of Roman Studies, 60 (1970), p. 48. That is to say that coin was used both in towns and in areas of settled agriculture, and in the ‘less developed’ as well as the ‘more sophisticated’ provinces…The overall picture…is that money was the dominant means of exchange for goods, at least in the cities, but that agricultural produce, particularly corn, played a substantial role alongside money in taxation, rents, wages, and credit. The use of money in all these areas shows how money use was embedded in the structure of the economy, and the use of kind does not need to be explained by a shortage of coin.

Persecution would have occurred at any period, because it attached to the bedrock of this religiousness…The persecutions are good evidence that the essential continuity of pagan religiousness was still significant. It was not the preserve of a few antiquarians: it still animated whole cities.
