At this time Rome was a city of about 1.5 million citizens, its people were housed mostly in 46,600 insulae (apartment blocks), each three to eight stories high, many flimsily made of wood. Some 400,000 slaves performed the menial work of Rome, with middle-class citizens often owning eight slaves, the rich from 500 to 1,000, the emperor owned as many as 20,000. Free urban residents enjoyed leisurely days, with free admission to baths, sporting events, and gladiatorial games.

Birth with a caul is rare, occurring in fewer than 1 in 80,000 births. The caul is harmless and is immediately removed by the physician or midwife upon delivery of the child.
