Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Agriculture in ancient Rome was not only a necessity, but was idealized among the social elite as a way of life. Cicero considered farming the best of all Roman occupations. In his treatise On Duties, he declared that “of all the occupations by which gain is secured, none is better than agriculture, none more profitable, none more delightful, none more becoming to a free man.” When one of his clients was derided in court for preferring a rural lifestyle, Cicero defended country life as "the teacher of economy, of industry, and of justice” (parsimonia, diligentia, iustitia). Cato, Columella, Varro and Palladius wrote handbooks on farming practices in Rome.
