@Noldorin You are quite correct; Barter was certainly the dominant form of trade. Probably not emphasised enough in my answer.

This doesn't really answer any of the question asked.

comment What sources or documentation exists to indicate Stalin's level of popularity in Russia today?
@Anixx I think his point is it allows too much scope for speculation, at least in the context of this question. Excellent answer by the way.

comment When were the lictors abolished?

Where is your source indicating they were abolished at all in Ancient Rome? livius.org/li-ln/lictor/lictor.html indicates they were still in use during the middle of the 5th century...
