Book Description

Nov 1984 ARCA (Classical & Medieval Texts, Papers & Monographs) (Book 15)
For this study of sheep-rearing in Roman Italy, Dr. Frayn presents and evaluates material from epigraphy, law, literature, archaeology, painting and sculpture to illuminate the social life of shepherd communities. Throughout, the ancient evidence for Italian practice is supplemented with comparative material from other ancient societies and (where relevant) from more modern farming experience.

Product Description


Dr Frayn has produced a learned and thorough survey of a highly important and rather neglected aspect of the Roman economy. -- Classical Review 38 (1988) 96-9

This is a pioneering work. Roman shepherds left little direct record of their presence, and Frayn has done well to assemble evidence from a wide variety of scattered sources. -- Journal of Roman Studies 76 (1986) 333
