'I am struck by what an excellent book this is - careful, considered but with some very significant new challenges and ways of approaching the silverware of antiquity. I think the way the book is structured with two chapters on imperial and sacred silver and two on different aspects of paideia is not only satisfactory in its own right, but feeds well into the much broader current interest in cultural matters in the history of late antiquity.' Jas Elsner, Corpus Christi College, Oxford '... handsomely produced and well illustrated...' Antiquity 'With a generous number of high quality illustrations, and useful, short overviews of the relevant archaeological vital statistics (date, provenance, and the often tortuous and murky history of modern ownership), the volume is quite accessible to the non-specialist. This is a rewarding study of a luxury art form as a cultural phenomenon.' Ancient History '... Leader-Newby has made a valuable addition to the study of late-antique silver. The book is well illustrated in black and white; the bibliography, part of which is to be found in the notes only, is reasonably full. This account of silver makes a large field accessible to the nonspecialist.' Speculum
