  • During the early Roman Empire, there was little naval activity, with it predominantly being used to transport soldiers and protect trade routes from pirates. However, it did play a significant role in numerous campaigns, for example, Trajan's conquests in Dacia. This was a common theme throughout the Roman Empire; the navy played a supporting role in many of Rome's land-based conflicts.
