Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"By combining a thorough catalogue of all known remains of Roman Italian fishponds with analysis of ancient texts and consideration of the fishpond's importance in aristocratic social display, Higginbotham records vanishing archaeological evidence and makes a significant contribution to Roman archaeology and social history."—Gail L. Hoffman, Yale University

"Brings together an impressive array of literary and archaeological material and constitutes the definitive study of this unique architectural form in Roman Italy. The University of North Carolina Press has produced a handsome and copiously illustrated volume."—American Journal of Archaeology
