This study uses examples from Britain to examine concepts of gender in Roman art. Specifically Morelli looks at representations of gods and goddesses, discussing Venus, Mars, Diana, Apollo, Minerva and Hercules in turn, and analysing the differing feminities and masculinities which they display through their poses, clothing and so forth. A final chapter looks at gendered personifications in Roman art such as lands, fortune, victory and the seasons.
