            Shortly after the death in 161 of Antoninus Pius, his sons dedicated a column to him as a funerary monument. The form of the column in general and the reliefs on the pedestal in particular raise problems central to the understanding of Roman art. In this first thorough study, ill...ustrated with nearly 100 photographs, Lise Vogel restores the column to its rightful place as one of the major monuments of Roman art. In addition, she re-evaluates the meaning of the column of Antoninus Pius in the context of the development of second century Roman imperial sculpture.

            The fascinus, or phallus, was at the heart of classical Roman art and life. No god was more represented in ancient Rome than the phallic deity Priapus, and the fescennine verses, one of the earliest forms of Roman poetry, accompanied the celebrations of Priapus, the harvest, and ...fertility. This title looks closely at this delicate interplay.

            Reception studies have been one of the fastest-growing subject areas within Classics in recent years but visual and material cultures have, so far, received little attention.This volume presents a wide-ranging exploration of modern receptions of ancient Greek material culture in ...various modern cultural traditions and practices, such as literature, architecture and the fine and performing arts, and spans the seventeenth century to the present day. The volume is distinctive because it brings together a variety of artistic and decorative media (architecture/built environment, stage and costume design, painting, sculpture, dance, cinema, performance poetry) and its breadth of focus in terms of place and period. Its distinguished contributors are drawn from a wide range of disciplines. Part I examines the sources and derivations of Hellenomania from the Baroque and pre-Romantic periods, to the early twentieth century. While covering more canonical material than the following sections, it also casts spotlights on less familiar figures and sets the scene for the illustrations of successive waves of Hellenomania explored in subsequent chapters; Part II focuses on appropriations of ancient Greek material culture in the built environment - mostly architecture -and examines in particular how a certain idealisation of Greek architecture affected its uses in modern applications; Part III explores challenges to the idealisation of ancient Greece, through the transformative power of colour, movement, and of reliving the past in the present human body, especially female; Part IV looks at how the fascination with the material culture of ancient Greece can move beyond the obsession with Greece and Greekness.
