At the end of the third century bc, the Roman Republic had no coherent plan of imperial expansion or roadmap for transforming conquered territories into provinces. The year 197 is notable as one in which two different models of imperialism collide — a traditional model employed at the end of the third Macedonian war in Greece, and an experimental model, the arrival of praetors to govern new provinces in Spain. The lack of coherence may be explained by the structures of the Roman state, and the specific models for making peace and war that had been current at Rome in the previous centuries. Attention is given to the evidence for treaties and provincialization.
