Family Lives

Aspects of Life and Death in Ancient Families

This richly illustrated volume offers an informative and essential guide to understanding notions of family in the ancient world. Covering a broad geographical and cultural range within the wider Mediterranean area, Family Lives explores an array of topics--religion, social status, age, gender, and more--within the contexts of both the public and private spheres of ancient society. In doing so, it sheds light on the ancient family in oikos/domus, theatre performances, burial contexts, votive practices, political propaganda, the Roman navy, and in negotiations and manifestations of gender roles.
