About the Authors
  • Although Roman provincial art is often portrayed as a poor copy of works created in the imperial capital, this volume's contributors offer new interpretations of provincial mosaics, wall-paintings, statues and jewelry. They express what these art works reveal about the nature of life under an imperial regime. Broad geographical and chronological coverage allows unique insights into the social and political significance of visual expression across the Roman Empire.

    • Places the study of Roman provincial art at the forefront of archaelogical and art historical enquiry
    • A representative overview of the directions in which the study of Roman provincial art is moving
    • This volume provides unique insights into the social and political significance of art across the Roman empire
