Product description

Review

Flower's writing style is accessible and the examples she cites are interesting enough to take the reader on the curious journey into an unfamiliar aspect of the ancient mind.--United Nations of Roma Victrix



A very valuable book on a fascinating and important subject.--Journal of Roman Studies



Closely argued and aptly illustrated. . . . Recommended.--CHOICE



A much-needed articulation . . . of Roman commemoration practices. . . . An engaging survey of Roman history [for] the nonspecialist. . . . Well illustrated.--The Historian



An important contribution to the study of commemoration in the classical world. . . . Thorough and well-argued. . . . Lucidly written and enriched by numerous illustrations, this book provides not only a rich source of information about Greek and Roman memory sanctions, but also offers a profound analysis on their development and implications for Roman republican and early imperial politics.--Tyche

From the Inside Flap

Flower provides the first chronological overview of the development of the Roman practice of destroying the memory of a leading citizen who was deemed an unworthy member of the community from archaic times into the second century A.D.
