About the Authors
  • This book examines the production of Julio-Claudian dynastic imagery from c. 31 BC to AD 68, charting the varying perceptions of the first Imperial family in both Rome and the Provinces. Focusing on statuary groups that feature several members of the family, this study also includes historical accounts, inscriptions, and coinage that relate to the public presentation of the dynasty. It also identifies the regional dynastic policy in Rome and its dissemination to and reception by provincial cities. Throughout, the levels of Imperial control and local initiative involved in the designing of dynastic monuments is assessed in order to demonstrate the problems that provincial dedicators encountered during their production.

    • The first comprehensive history of early Imperial portraiture
    • The first catalogue and analysis of Julio-Claudian dynastic monuments and coinage
    • The first study of dynastic imagery and propaganda in both Rome and the provinces

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The great strength of this volume is its collection of the scattered evidence, both sculptural and epigraphic, and the author's clear-headed weaving together of these materials to produce a stimulating assessment of the creation and perception of Julio-Claudian dynastic imagery … a fascinating discussion.' Susan Kane, Apollo

    ' … a meticulous piece of work; and it touches on crucial issues in the political history of the early Roman Empire'. The Times Literary Supplement
