EAGER TO BE ROMAN: GREEK RESPONSE TO ROMAN RULE IN PONTUS AND BITHYNIA
Published by Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd.. 1st. 2009
Nearly fine condition in a very good dustwrapper. Drawing on a detailed investigation of literary work and epigraphic evidence, the author demonstrates that Greek intellectuals and members of the local elite in this province were in fact keen to identify themselves as Roman, and that imperial connections and Roman culture were prestigious in the eyes of their Greek readers and fellow-citizens. Black boards, gilt title to spine. B/w photos.
Text block and pages edges lightly browned. Contents otherwise clean. Black pictorial dustwrapper is scuffed.
