Where they stored the dole

Where they stored the dole


Once Trajan's port came into operation it was no longer necessary for the vast
quantities of grain - shipped from Africa and Sicily to feed Rome's citizens -
to be landed at Putteoli (the modern town Pozzuoli, near Naples in Campania)
and carted some one hundred miles northwards along the Empires precious roads.
