Back in the day of the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, style was was everything. They pretty much invented the fashion, and the fact that what you wore was a direct reflection of the person you were. Think of the Appian Way as the first runway fashion show. You did not show up to any event at the Coliseum with yesterdays fashions. Rumor has it, that Gladiators were often former citizens who had on last years fashions. C’mon, do you really think Anthony and Cleopatra would wear anything less than the finest in Persian jewelry and Egyptian cotton?
