This study examines traditions in late-Antique sculpture, including conservation, modernisation and production. In the Roman world, marble sculpture could be reworked for several reasons. The most common form of reworking, generally easy to recognise, could be termed functional - a portrait could be re-cut to represent another person, or a complete sculpture modified for a new setting. In consequence, much Roman sculpture, including well-known monuments like the Ara Pacis, in fact represent several working phases.

"In the Roman world, marble sculpture could be reworked for several reasons. . Much Roman sculpture, including well-known monuments like the Ara Pacis, in fact represent several working phases. In this study it will be argued that late Antiquity often came to set the final stamp upon a monument. It was a period which was much concerned with its cultural heritage, an attitude which resulted not only in the careful preservation of existing monuments, but also in a substantial output of sculpture in the Classical tradition. A revised picture of late Antique sculpture in general is called for." (flap) Highly illustrated, with portraiture sculpture and busts. Scarce.
