Product Description

Review

"An immensely prolific scholar of the last three centuries of the Roman Republic, Gruen has been moving toward studies of the more purely cultural aspects of the period. He considers the means and the extent to which the Roman aristocracy assimilated Greek culture and, in assimilating it, asserted their own separate Roman identity. . . . The book illustrates Gruen's strengths: mastery of the ancient evidence and ability to argue it."-Choice

From the Back Cover

Few encounters in antiquity have had more profound consequences than that between Greek culture and Republican Rome.
