At the height of the Empire, Roman control extended over two-thirds of the Pontic shoreline. The advent of Rome brought immediate changes in administration, taxation and power relations. Over time other less tangible, but no less important changes in lifestyle, modes of thought, self-perception and consumption patterns followed. This volume traces the cultural impact of Rome on its Pontic dominions, as well as the reation of the indigenous population.
