    Roman authorities sanctioning population transfers of free non-Romans into Roman territory are attested but eight times 180 B.C.E.-ca 70 C.E. The literary and epigraphic evidence poorly attests the transfers but instructively links them to Roman competition for glory. The investigation also illuminates demographic and geopolitical issues.
