Abstract:

"This book is the first detailed study in any language on the province of Sicily between its occupation by the future emperor Augustus in 36 B.C. and its incorporation into the Byzantine Empire in A.D. 535. The evidence is primarily archaeological, much of it hitherto unstudied. The book deals with urbanization, the countryside, industry and the pattern of trade, and the religious cults of Sicily during the period, and there is full descriptive analysis of the known buildings, public and private. An introductory section examines the state of Sicily at the time of the late Republic, and another chapter explores the extent to which a fundamentally Greek Island was affected by Romanization. Particularly valuable are the many maps, plans and line-drawings accompanying the text which have been specially prepared for this book, and there are also numerous photographs, including twelve in colour. Very fully documented, this book is likely to become the standard reference work on its subject for many years to come." -- Provided by publisher
