The Roman Banquet: Images of Convivialityby Katherine M. D. Dunbabin
Pub. Date: 02/05/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Drawing frequently upon ancient inscriptions as well as other archaeological material, Katherine Dunbabin studies the representations of the banquet in Roman painting, mosaic, sculpture, and the minor arts, and compares them to archaeological evidence as well as written sources. She discusses the history of dining practices and the evolution of the iconography of dining. By highlighting the artistic and archaeological evidence, Dunbabin offers a more well-rounded picture of the role of the Roman banquet than can be found in literary sources alone.
