Abstract

The article focuses on the discussion of the so-called "Antonine Plague", the first historically documented pandemic event. In the span of 23 years, from 165 to 189, a virus, not yet identified with certainty, caused many millions of victims and very serious consequences on the economic and social life of the Roman Empire and also in the surrounding territories.
