The Last Statues of Antiquity

Edited by R. R. R. Smith and Bryan Ward-Perkins

  • The first comprehensive survey of Roman statuary in the public realm in Late Antiquity, exploring the reasons behind the decline and eventual disappearance of this important phenomenon
  • Based on a major research project and corresponding online database which collates all the available evidence for the erection of statues across the Roman Empire from the late third century AD onwards
  • Provides a pan-Empire comparative overview, examining individual regions (including the Near East), cities (such as Aphrodisias), and also the different honorands, from provincial governors to cultural heroes
  • Chapters written by an international range of key experts in the field, including scholars directly involved in the research
  • Richly illustrated with an extensive selection of photographs, maps, and graphs
