Espace commercial et puissance publique à Pompéi

Abstract : Using the inscriptions of Pompeii, a study on the relationship between public power - magistrates and decurions under colonial rule - and urban commercial activity is proposed. Not using inferences from other Roman cities limits positive attestations, but it allows to refute certain interpretations maintained for over a century. This analysis allows to show that no Pompeian magistrate has ever had coercive powers to limit commercial or productive practice. The only "economic policy" of Pompeii lays in granting the temporary use of public land and in constructing shops and workshops for the benefit of the colony.
