In ancient Rome, the plebs was the general body of free Roman citizens who were neither slaves nor patricians, as determined by the census. Shopkeepers, crafts people, and skilled or unskilled workers might be plebeian. From the 4th century BC or earlier, some of the most prominent and wealthy Roman families, as identified by their gens name, were of plebeian status. Literary references to the plebs, however, usually mean the ordinary citizens of Rome as a collective, as distinguished from the elite—a sense retained by "plebeian" in English.
