State Capacity in Roman Egypt: A Quantitative Approach


Project Summary:

The objective of this project is to develop quantitative methods to measure temporal variations in ‘state capacity’ in Roman Egypt from ca. 30 BC to ca. AD 300. ‘State capacity’ refers to a state’s ability to implement its official goals. The study will focus on three datasets relevant to these goals: edicts and letters issued by the provincial governor; petitions to judicial authorities; and poll‐tax receipts.
