Front Cover
Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies, 1982 - Aphrodisiacs - 214 pages
The texts from Aphrodisias in Caria at the core of this book provide remarkable documentation for Roman history during the Mithridatic War, the Second Triumvirate and the second-third centuries A.D. They include a Greek translation of the longest senatus consultum so far known and a number of imperial letters. They throw light on provincial attitudes to Rome, on Roman policies in the provinces, on the relation of Octavian with Antony, and on many fascinating details of Roman administrative practice.
