This paper outlines the evolving behaviour of the Roman Senate from the silent grauitas of the Archaic age (which was doubtless idealized in later times) through the frequent quarrels at the end of the Republic until the imperial adclamationes, still sporadic under the Julio-Claudians, regular, but oral only under the Flavians, recorded since Trajan: this new habit was most probably of Oriental origin.
