Squire s ambitious book...presents a thought-provoking case...Squire s brief but wide-ranging (and amply illustrated) book is packed with ideas...Squire is surely right that art history loses sight of Graeco-Roman antiquity at its peril. --Catherine Edwards, TLS
'Squire's generally sensitive discussion of the later emperors eschews such hyperbole, ending with some interesting musings on corporeal hybridity and fragmentation, aided by a late Egyptian portrait mummy...addresses in a sophisticated and accessible way the protocols and paradoxes of figuring the divine.' --Reviews in History --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
