Editorial Reviews


"The argument is a sound and careful one and, as if that were not enough, the book is generously illustrated and lucidly written. In fact, Peterson's lucidity, combined with her careful presentation of essential information, make her individual chapters an excellent introduction to the various monuments that she considers." --Ellen Perry, College of the Holy Cross: NECJ

Book Description

Roman freed slaves, or freedmen, were prodigious patrons of art and architecture. In this study, Lauren Petersen critically investigates the notion of "freedman art" in scholarship, dependent as it is on elite-authored texts that are filled with hyperbole and stereotype of freedmen, such as the memorable fictional character Trimalchio, a boorish ex-slave in Petronius' Satyricon.
