who piped "politics of ancient rome" into "politial institutions of ancient rome"? the latter is more sections of the govenmental group, while the whole idea of politics is individual people and actions. the "roman law" page is also too small. it should be more of a list page to the different sections of how the laws worked. for example: what was an ancient roman courtroom like? were there lawyers who debated the ideas? were there investigations or witnesses? there is definite lacking in this area.

(and if the reason none of this stuff is on here because scientists, archaeologists,and scholars don't know anything about it, then please ignore all of this because I'm making a huge fool of myself.) Sompm (talk) 18:26, 8 January 2008 (UTC)


Proletarians vs Head Count[edit]

Shouldn't "Proletarians " be replaced with "Capite censi" (i.e. head count), which is more reflective of the ancient roman term for the lower classes? Regardless, the article on the Proletarians focuses on the Marxist view and makes no reference to ancient Rome. BroMonque (talk) 15:27, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

A Roman Law component has since been added to the Proletariate article. Elfelix (talk) 02:03, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
