comment Gap between poor and rich in the Roman Empire
1) You're projecting your image of contemporary class society backwards 2000 years, not acceptable. 2) "Buying power" is a concept that only develops in modern capitalism, similarly with "political regime" as you mean it, and also "wealth" and "accumulation." This question is so theoretically loaded with anachronism that it can't be answered. Its impossible to construct a meaningful wage price series back to England's monestaries with very good wage / price records for theoretical reasons. The 2000 year run is impossible. Ask about the meaning of wealth and poverty in Rome instead.

Gold by weight isn't an acceptable purchasing power parity measure and the very meanings of purchase have changed so significantly that it is worthless to attempt a PPP measure across two thousand years.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is unanswerable.

Simplistic and lacking in sources.

comment Why are modern tanks regiments called cavalry?
Question needs improvement. Its assumption that tank regiments are called cavalry is to a significant extent wrong in relation to UK's 1 & 2 Royal Tank Regiments which lack "cavalry tradition." Australia makes a similar distinction army.gov.au/Who-we-are/Corps/… with "cavalry" being used for armoured scouting units, and "armour" used to describe tanks, and "light horse" describing motorised and mechanised infantry. "Its complicated."
