Plebeians make up the majority of the social structure.
10% and were a small minority.
In Rome, the elders were honored, and women had no rights
Everyone celebrated the same holidays and had the same gods.
Plebeians could not marry the patricians.
In both classes, the oldest male was the paterfamilias or head of the family.
Slaves would also often receive tips from local, kind citizens and once they gained enough money, they could pay their masters for freedom.
Many slaves were granted their freedom when their master died.
People defeated in battle were taken as slaves by the Romans
They were treated badly and if they fell into debt, they could be sold into slavery
Since the plebeians were unemployed, the government gave them baths, free grain, and games to keep them quiet and happy.
Plebeians mean many
Patricians were the only ones that could perform religious customs.
Patrician means father.
Patricians did not need to pay taxes and they could vote.
Patrician women spent the day planning dinner parties for when their husbands got home.
