"A great virtue of Dillon's study is her attention to bot the Greek setting of the original images and the display of busts and herms, and more rarely full statues of these past men of action or thought in Roman villas and gardens."
-Barbara Tsakirgis, Vanderbilt University
"Portrait Sculpture. Context, Subjects, and Styles... is a great book. ...[I]t is hard to do justice to the many issues that it raises. All the more reason, I think, to use the volume in your next seminar on Greek and Roman portraiture."
-Peter Schultz, Concordia College, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
This book offers a new approach to the history of Greek portraiture by focusing on portraits without names. It calls into question two basic tenets of Greek portraiture, arguing that that the proliferation of portrait styles often associated with the late Hellenistic period took place in the late Classical period, and that the identity expressed by these portraits is more complex and nuanced than previously realized.
