Lawrence Keppie's book offers the non-specialist a comprehensive and enjoyable guide to undestanding the texts of Roman inscriptions, as well as explaining the numerous different contexts in which they were produced.
Every area of Roman life is covered, including:
* the emperor
* temples and altars to the gods
* imperial administration
* gravestones and tomb monuments
* local government and society
* the army and the frontiers
* Christianity
* trade, commerce and the economy
* the later Roman Empire.
For each inscription cited, the book provides the original Latin, an English translation and a commentary on the piece's significance. Illustrated with more than 80 photos and drawings, this is the ideal introduction to the most important source for the history and organisation of the Roman Empire.
