  • The Shape of the Roman Orderby Daniel J. Gargola

    The University of North Carolina Press 2017; US$ 44.99

    In recent years, a long-established view of the Roman Empire during its great age of expansion has been called into question by scholars who contend that this model has made Rome appear too much like a modern state. This is especially true in terms of understanding how the Roman government ordered the city--and the world around it--geographically.... more...

  • On Roman Timeby Michele Renee Salzman

    University of California Press 1991; US$ 80.00

  • Die metrischen Inschriften der römischen Republikby Peter Kruschwitz

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 224.00

    Die literarische Poesie der römischen Republik ist nur stark fragmentarisch überliefert.
