FJAG said:Quite right, but the Romans used a lot of wagons for transport. An interesting picture from Pompeii shows stepping stones for pedestrians in the streets and the wagon wheel ruts leading up to them:
Yes, and any wagons coming from outside Pompeii if they couldn't fit through the ruts would have to move their loads to wagons that could (e.g. those from Pompeii). A good way to keep out outside competition and create jobs for Pompeian wagoneers.
