Editorial Reviews


Review of the hardback: 'This clear-headed, balanced and subtle analysis of an important but neglected topic should be in every university library.' The Journal of Classics Teaching

Book Description

This study of Roman popular morality argues that we can recover much of the moral thinking of ordinary people in the early Empire. Drawing on proverbs, fables, exemplary stories and gnomic quotations, she explores how morality worked, for Roman society as a whole and for individuals.
