Editorial Reviews

"Far better than anyone else who has written on daily life in ancient Rome, Dupont conveys a sense of the city itself as both physical and symbolic space." Times Literary Supplement

"Dupont's book is filled with fascinating minutiae of the material aspects and customs of Roman life." Choice

"A fascinating study of Roman society....This translation from French is lively and enjoyable." Library Journal

"This book presents fascinating reading-material, made available in a well-written style." Mnemosyne

"The author's often unusual approach and her striking ability to understand the Roman mind give it a unique stamp. She is very well served too by her translator whose version is remarkably fluent and graceful." Classics Ireland
