“Life is great in the Roman Empire!”
“Rome is an amazing place if you have money. For example, . . .
“Not for all of us! What’s so good about your daily life?”
“Also I have a grand house built of stone and marble and I have an indoor pool to keep me and my family atrium cool.”
“All I live in is a dark cramped apartment with filth and a risk of sickness. There are also rats around the homes and fires start easily.”
“When I was younger I was tutored by my father or a slave until I was six.”
“ I wish I had that treatment, I was sent to work instead of school!”
“Well I work also, and keep a well paid political job, and my wife runs the household while i’m working.”
“With us poor families, husbands and wives have to work in order to take care of themselves and their children.
Food and Drinks
“Food for us is magnificent. We get elaborate dinners and special appetizers like mice cooked in honey, and roasted parrot, and even snails dipped in milk.”
“Poor families like us, had to cook on small grills and for dinners we might have eaten chunks of fish.”
