Description: This study focuses on the presence of numerous Romans and Italiote Greeks at various spots of mainland Greece and the adjacent islands. Various historical evolutions encouraged an economic outreach of these people who searched for profit opportunities abroad and are attested from the 3 rd c. BC onwards at many places of the Roman oecumene, from the Iberian Peninsula to Asia Minor and from Rhine and Danube to North Africa.
