Extensively revised and further enlarged, this is the third edition of an indispensable tool for understanding the painting, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts of ancient Rome. Clear and comprehensive, it covers the 1300 years from the Villanovan and Etruscan forerunners of the Romans to the introduction of Christianity under the Emperor Constantine the Great. The new edition includes a discussion of archaeological ethics, including the issues of restoration and forgeries; the illegal import of antiquities; and the history of collecting. The text now covers more architectural monuments, both in the capital and the provinces; and discusses the art of each historical period, while also looking at history, myth, literature, and social customs. The clearly written text, incorporating the most up-to-date scholarship, is complemented by numerous new photographs and diagrams.
