Editorial Reviews

New England Classical Newsletter and Journal
A strength of the book is its careful integration of model inscriptions into their respective chapters, so well effected as to appear almost effortless... This book should find its niche as a valuable supplement to courses and institutes on Roman history and civilization and general courses in archaeology. It is a good purchase.
