From the Paper:

"Though there several reasons that ultimately gave rise to the power of ancient Rome, some of the more significant ones are the influence of the far more advanced Greek civilization, which had entered Italy through the Greeks settling cities such as Cumea. From the Greeks, the ancient Romans learnt fundamental skills such as reading and writing and inevitably borrowing from Greek mythology to derive their own religion. The Roman gods of Jupiter, Mars and Venus find their equivalents in the Greek Zeus, Ares and Aphrodite. Ancient Rome also benefited from its Etruscan neighbors in the north, learning the skills of developing urban civilization and sea borne trade from them (Illustrated History of the Roman Empire)."
