Headword: Ῥωμαίων πόλις
Adler number: rho,247
Translated headword: Romans' city
Vetting Status: high
[Note] that the Romans' city, with no experience of sending out armies abroad,[1] conducted a census of its citizen-body and discovered their numbers to be not far short of three hundred thousand -- and this when it was worn down by continuous wars and had not yet benefited from a long and secure peace.
Greek Original:
Ῥωμαίων πόλις: ὅτι ἡ Ῥωμαίων πόλις ἀπείρατος ὑπερορίων ἐκστρατειῶν τυγχάνουσα, ἐξέτασιν τοῦ πλήθους ποιησαμένη κατέμαθε τὸν ἀριθμὸν τῶν πολιτῶν οὐ πολὺ τριάκοντα μυριάδων ἀπολειπόμενον, καὶ ταῦτα συνεχέσι τριβομένη πολέμοις, οὐδεπώποτε δὲ μακρᾶς καὶ βεβαίας εἰρήνης ἀπολελαυκυῖα.
cf. Eutropius, Breviarium 2.18, with an exact figure of 292,334 (text uncertain; the epitome of Livy has 292,234) and the date 477 AUC (= 276 BCE), which should be 264/3. See F.W. Walbank, A Historical Commentary on Polybius, i (Oxford 1957) 202-203.
