Editorial Reviews


"Williams demonstrates convincingly that the epigraphical and literary texts construct substantially different pictures of how friendship was negotiated and conceived in ancient Rome, not least in respect to gender and class relations. It is not too much to say that Williams' careful attention to inscriptions, along with his sensitive interpretations of literary and philosophical texts, will transform in fundamental ways the prevailing conception of Roman amicitia...It is scholarship at its best, and anyone interested in ancient Roman friendship will want to read it." Sehepunkte, Ausgabe 13 (2013), Nr. 7/8

Book Description

This book explores the ways in which friendship was performed by Romans through readings of a wide range of literary texts - poems, novels and philosophical writings, letters both by emperors and by soldiers and commemorations on epitaphs commissioned by men, women, citizens and slaves. A richly varied and perhaps surprising picture emerges.
