Description
In a large format, beautifully illustrated with 217 photographs and reproductions of art (135 in color), this surprisingly engaging and enlightening history presents 100 biographies of figures from the Roman Empire, revealing the mightiest civilization of the ancient world through the lives of its citizens. A centurion and a plasterer's wife share pages with the orator Cicero and the scholar Pliny the Elder, while a vestal virgin is accompanied by Antinous, the boy-lover of Hadrian. Christian church patriarch Augustine and converted emperor Constantine rub shoulders with Julian the Apostate and Vettius Agorius Praetextatus, leader of the pagans. Here too are Roman women—among the most liberated and powerful women of the ancient world—including Servilia, Caesar's lover; teenaged poet Sulpicia; Amazonia, a sword-swinging gladiator; and Cloelia, who escaped captivity by swimming the Tiber.
