MH>  In fact, the Romans *did* require people to travel to their birthplace
MH>  in order to register for a census.  A census edict from Egypt, from
104
MH>  a.d., shows that they did just that. It begins: "Gaius Vibius Maximus,
MH>  prefect of Egypt, says: The house-to-house census having started, it
is
MH>  essential that all persons who for any reason whatsoever are absent
MH>  from their homes be summoned to return to their own hearths, in order
MH>  that they perform the customary business of registration." ("A History
MH>  of Rome Through the Fifth Century, ed. A.H.M. Jones, c. 1970, Harper
MH>  and Row.)

Were women required to make the journey for a census?
