      Salve, Gnaeus Musius! Merlinia Ambrosia sends Greetings.
      Various emperors were 'defining' the food/foodshop laws all thru
      the empire. It's just something they did, some for hygienics, some to
      keep competition down, etc. If you wish to go into more detail, read
      'Travel in the Ancient World' by Lionel Casson, Johns Hopkins University
      Press, Baltimore, MD, USA, 1994. ISBN 0-8018-4808-3.

      Vale!
