comment How widespread was the practice of chaining slave rowers to the ships?
I already read this by the link provided by jwenting. What really interests me is whether there is ANY evidence that people were CAST or CHAINED to the ships in at least one instance in ancient Rome or Greece.

And, was there any practice in Ancient Greece or Rome to cast/chain the (slave) rowers to the ship? Was not casting people to an oar or benches too expensive to rely on, even of the crew were slaves?

Thanks. What about toilets, and what about the actual practice in the Roman Empire and Greece? I also wonder whether they were chained to the ships or detachable oars. How could they help the pasha if they were chained or were they detached while in a port?

comment In ancient Rome, did a lot of people feel guilty about owning slaves?
@Felix Goldberg If we look at the law Lex Aelia Sentia under Augustus en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lex_Aelia_Sentia was that a freed slave if he was under 30 would not receive full voting rights until he married and beared 1 child or a court (consillium) granted him citizenship upon freeing. So at least this law less prohibited freeings but more restricted the voting rights of the freed. The other laws imposed the quotas on how many slaves a rich slaveowner could free, but allowed more freedom to a small slaveowner.

comment What form of home address did Romans use?
@horsh Indeed, this site pompeiiinpictures.com/pompeiiinpictures/R0/name_index.htm says "The original Roman house names and numbers are not known."
