The first kings of Rome were all Latin. Then came the Etruscans. The oldest and wisest of them were appointed senators. Eventually an Etruscan became king of Rome, and, after him, another and another. At first the Romans were happy to have Etruscan kings who embellished the city with palaces and temples, cleaned up the fields, brought drinking water to the city by building aqueducts. The workshops of the artisans worked briskly and their products were sold throughout Lazio up to those southern lands where the Greeks had settled. The Greeks also manufactured weapons, vases, fabrics, jewels and wanted to sell their wares in Lazio.
