Roman Breakfast
Emperor Hadrian

For most people in Ancient Rome at the time of the reign of the Emperor Hadrian, the day would begin at dawn.

Roman Slaves would have to get up earlier to be prepared for their masters, and would have duties to perform for the Roman household and their owners.

The first meal of the day was known as the ientaculum. For the vast majority of Romans, and Roman Slaves, this would have been just plain water and, maybe, a piece of bread.

Wealthier Ancient Romans would have eaten bread, honey and fruit in the morning and to drink they also, would have had plain water.

Sometimes for the well-off, there would have been cheese with the bread at breakfast. Also olives, and raisins might be eaten with the bread.

There was a custom in Ancient Rome to distribute free bread every day for the poorer people. Many Ancient Roman workers would grab some bread on their way to work and breakfast on that.

So, poor people, and slaves would have had only water, and if they were lucky, bread to break their morning fast.

Rich Ancient Romans in the time of the Emperor Hadrian might have eaten a more extravagant breakfast and would have had fish, fruit, meat, vegetables, cheese, olives and honey. They would have dipped their bread in wine.
