The Roman legions' staple ration of food was wheat. Wine was sometimes adjusted and "improved" by its makers: instructions survive for making white wine from red and vice versa, as well as for rescuing wine that is turning to vinegar. Naturally, a measuring jug is also perfectly acceptable as a modern-day substitute.

    The most ostentatious tableware was made of costly materials, such as silver, gold, bronze, or semi-precious stone such as rock crystal, agate, and onyx. At the Roman banquet, wine was served throughout the meal as an accompaniment to the food. Find out more facts about the Romans by visiting our Romans resouces page.
