Chapter Summary

The chapters in this book represent the fruits of a multidisciplinary attempt to investigate one dimension of the civic societies of late Republican Italy and the early imperial provinces: the roles played in them by women. They examine a great range of evidence for women's various contributions to civic life, their priesthoods, patronage, travels, benefactions, professional life, dress and public representation. The aim of the book is to contribute to an integrated approach of the study of Roman urban society and that of Roman women, by both looking at the local Roman cities from the perspective of women and gender, and studying women within their social and civic context.
