dc.description.abstract It was the third century BC in early Rome - republican Rome. The city of Rome, which looked like a village though, was by now the largest city in Italy with more or less 100 000 inhabitants. Rome had been at warfare for several centuries and was still continuing her wars. Despite Rome's continuous warfare and the rapid expansion of the territory of the Roman state, the general appearance of the city of Rome underwent little change between the end of the regal period and the third century BC (the period between 509 and 300 BC). In 386 BC the Gauls sacked Rome and nearly destroyed the city. After the destruction by the Gauls, Rome was rebuilt but still looked like a village. en
