Beyond Local Munificence: Some Remarks on Imperial and Communal Funding for Building in the Cities of Roman Asia, from Augustus to the Tetrarchic Era

Abstract

The aim of this article is to review evidence of Imperial benefactions and civic funding in the area of local public building in Asia from Augustus to the tetrarchic era. discussion of the results of previous studies shows that what is called Imperial building in the cities was a practice which was both rare and complying with restricted ideological and practical rules. At the same time, cities of all sizes funded many building or restoration operations in the High Empire. the data from the tetrarchic era will then be compared to those from the High Empire and to Code of Justinian 11.42. Finally, it appears that after the end of the habitus of local munificence for building operations, what predominates is a sense of administrative routine, directly rooted in the rules known from the correspondence between trajan and Plinius or from the de officio proconsulis.
