This book consists of a comprehensive collection of ancient literary evidence on Roman art and artists, assembled together in translation and provided with linking passages to set the historical context. Its purpose is to make this evidence accessible to students who are not specialists in the classical languages or classical archaeology. The surviving evidence is limited in extent but extremely precious in quality. This volume makes virtually all of it available between one set of covers.
