The status of citizen was increasingly the right of the majority in the Roman empire and brought important privileges and exemption from certain forms of punishment. However, not all Roman citizens were equal; for example bastards, freed persons, women, the physically and mentally handicapped, under-25s, ex-criminals and soldiers were subject to restrictions and curtailments on their capacity to act. Being a Roman Citizen examines these forms of limitation and discrimination and thereby throws into sharper focus Roman conceptions of citizenship and society.

Review quote

The meaning of Roman citizenship has been investigated in detail by Claude Nicolet.... The most intersting aspect of her work is the discussion of women and children, both of whom belong to the commonwelath butdo not share fully the priviledges of citizenship..
