Guilds - fabri navales
Comment: Abstract. The shipwrights and shipyards in the ancient Ports of Ostia and Portus. From the list of members of the association of shipwrights of Portus and Ostia and further inscriptions which provide information about the fabri navales and the associations of craftsmen co-operating with them (especially the stuppatores, restiones and pelliones), the high standing of the shipbuilding branch in the two harbour metropolises at the estuary of the Tiber in the imperial period can be clearly appreciated. An almost insatiable demand for transport space and the constant obligation to maintain and repair the seagoing and river vessels brought a large number of shipyards full order books and their owners great wealth and repute. However, unlike the vocational association of shipwrights in Ostia, the corpus fabrum navalium Portensium seems to have been subject to a direct state control already at the turn of the 3rd century which is ascribable to the requirements of the state-operated supply of grain for the city of Rome.
