The Neighborhoods of Augustan Rome
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis volume investigates the neighborhoods of ancient Rome during the reign of the first Roman Emperor, Caesar Augustus (27 BCE-14 CE). Focusing on a group of neighborhood-based voluntary associations that were important political and social communities for the city's diverse population of slaves and ex-slaves, it locates the Augustan neighborhoods within the broader context of the history of Rome. John Bert Lott stresses their importance as physical and cultural divisions of the city and investigates the distinctive relationship between local neighborhoods and Augustus himself.
Inhaltsverzeichnis1. Introducing neighborhoods at Rome and elsewhere; 2. Neighborhoods in the Roman Republic; 3. Republic to Empire; 4. The reforms of Augustus; 5. The artifacts of neighborhood culture; 6. Conclusion.
PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'Overall this study gives a fascinating insight into the lives of the urban plebs, which the overwhelming mass of our evidence largely obscures ... It could be of interest and value to teachers of the late republic or the age of Augustus, whose lessons would be enhanced by a perusal of it ... an interesting read.' The Journal of Classics Teaching
