Lucidly arranged according to subject matter, the richly illustrated text covers architecture, large sculptures, statuettes, paintings and mosaics, gems, coins, jewellery, pottery and vase painting, furniture, textiles, glass, ornament and epigraphy. A companion volume, A Handbook of Roman Art, is available from Phaidon.
