Hypothesis - but what else could be done?,
This review is from: The Roman Triumph (Hardcover)
Not a book for the faint hearted! A good knowledge of the Republic and the early Empire is essential to enable gain from this work. The evidence for the subject is thin, but the author demonstrates how an understanding of this aspect of Roman culture can be built up through scholarly guesswork. She is carefull to explain how her conclusions are drawn, as well as the little that can be descibed as 'fact'.
