Summary/Abstract: The article reviews some historical and comparative legal aspects of the extraction of mineral resources in Ancient Rome. For all the glory and grandeur of Ancient Rome, Roman economy never developed into anything complex compared to modem economies. Agriculture and trade dominated Roman economic fortunes, industrial production being a mere supplement. The largest industry in ancient Rome was mining, which provided the stones for the enormous building projects as well as metals for tools and weapons for the conquest of the western world. Mining was one of ancient Rome's most important activities. The article analyses the different legislative technique in Roman law concerning mining and quarrying in the agerpublicus or in the ager privatus, the use of the terms metalla publica and metalla privata, etc. It poses some similar problems and actual solutions.
