Ulpian refers to “places” frequented by those who “declare themselves for sale.” Plautus places persons who “sell themselves” in Rome’s Tuscan Quarter and arguably links this activity with the statue of Vertumnus. This article argues that Vertumnus presided over a place where individuals sold themselves into slavery and/or, less likely, sponsored a kind of labor-exchange.
