    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 173.52

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 0.00

    The ancient city of Rome can be understood as an ensemble of monuments, as a space of action for its inhabitants, as a literary construction.

From the perspective of various classical disciplines,... more...

  • Family Favouritesby Alfred Duggan

    Pan Macmillan 2012; US$ 7.51
