If you mean their lifespan, the Romans, depending on their class, had a relatively long lifespan. There are many recorded instances of Romans in their late sixties, seventies and eighties. The poorer classes, without access to good medical treatment or medicines, had a shorter lifespan of about forty-five to fifty years. Augustus lived to be 77 years old and Livia his wife, was 86 or 83 when she died. Tiberius was also 77 when he died and the emperor Galba was well into his seventies when he became emperor. There were much shorter lifespans in the military, as tombstone inscriptions tell us.

Surprisingly fairly long for an ancient people. There are many instances of men and women living into their eighties. Tiro, Cicero's slave secretary, is reported to have lived to be close to 100 years old. Caesar was 56, but his life was cut short. Marc Antony was about the same age, but his life too, was cut short. Augustus lived to almost 75. And he was sickly for most of his life. These lifespans were probably due to the Romans' insistence on fresh water and sanitary conditions in their homes and cities. Infant and childhood mortality, however was quite high. If a child lived to be ten years of age, he/she could expect a life of perhaps fifty or more years. Of course these guestimates do not take into consideration, things such as wars, plagues, natural disasters or occupational hazards.
