Roman society has deeply been changed by conquests. Two major changes can be observed: the influx of wealth led to significant social changes and significant cultural changes resulting from the Greco-Oriental conquest. From the second century BC, the ruling class was divided into two distinct groups: the first group was dedicated exclusively to state government and forms the senatorial nobility. The second group was dedicated exclusively to business affairs: the knights. It follows from contemporary accounts that the main result of the conquest is to have widened the gap between rich and poor and middle classes have rolled in both rural and urban areas.
