With bust creations of a full length statue of the young Augustus to other statesmen with these statues having a historic and an artistic value to them.

Agriculture

Just like Greece, the Rome economy was mainly based on its agriculture. The Romans would import their wheat and engage in trade. While the Romans just like the Greeks would be manufacturing goods within their own wall as well. With Romans following in the Greeks footsteps, they acquire significant minerals from quarries. In Rome the economy was dependent on the slave labor from the expansion until the late empire. With more land being conquered this lead to Romans to allow to trade and loot the newly conquered land.

Woman's Rights

The Woman were subjective to the dominant male in the household of her husband. The woman could own and dispose of her property and do as she wished. With being a one man woman she could be a Roman citizen. They were valued for piety, modesty, and maintenance of harmony.
