Zanker begins his analysis at the point where the characteristic features of "Roman art" started to emerge, when the Romans began to encounter Hellenistic culture through their conquest of Greek lands in the third century B.C. With the Hellenization of Roman society, the culture's values and political structures changed, as did the character of the images it generated. Over time the Romans created a broad repertoire of easy-to-read key images which was drawn on by artists throughout the empire in creating a wide range of visual displays."@en ;
