Summary
Rome grew from a tiny community of small hill villages near the River Tiber in central Italy to one of the most powerful empires the world has seen. By the middle of the second century CE, Rome had a population of 1.5 million; Alexandria, in Egypt, 500,000; and Londinium, in Briton, 30,000. How was this possible? Military power, colonial organization, superior technology, infrastructure, and a cohesive economic system all played parts, but the very idea of Rome was born from mythology
