the salary contains no data

Pliny following Aristotle's ideas, interpretes the use of salt as a means of payment: ". . . in Rome . . . the soldier's pay was originally salt and the word salary derives from it . . . " Plinius Naturalis Historia. XXXI - However we should note that Pliny may well have interpreted this payment wrongly. To judge from the missions and the locations to which the Roman army was despatched, it would seem that protecting the salt sources and ensuring the viability of the 'via salarium' was the true military objective - The first "legions" aka : LEGIO : "levying" were for the monarchy External link:The Salt Archive Economics
