Abstract/Summary This thesis examines the economy of Roman Cyprus during the Antonine and Severan periods. Though historians have worked on earlier periods of Cypriot economic history, this period has been largely neglected except for a few passing references. This thesis attempts to rectify this deficiency. The tools which have been most relevant to the study are archaeological evidence, and literary and epigraphical references, though when necessary, inferences have been drawn from what is known about other provinces, and tentative conclusions reached by applying these insights, where appropriate, to the special conditions in the island. Perhaps the most important result of the study is that Roman Cyprus had a healthy, flourishing economy which made a significant contribution to the prosperity of the Roman Empire.
