An illustration of the complexity and dynamics of the Ancient Roman society and social order. Ancient Roman society was structured along the lines of wealth, political privilege, ancestry, citizenship, and freedom (it was also unquestionably centered around men: women's social status was defined by their fathers or husbands). Although the separation between different classes was well defined and set by law, there was a lot of interaction and overlapping hierarchies, placing the individual higher or lower in society in various contexts. The roman republic as a form of government endured throughout history and was copied and imitated countless times. The architecture of the United States government is largely influenced by the model of Rome.
