In this beautifully illustrated book, we experience the synthesis of Cleopatra's and Rome's defining moments through surviving works of art and other remnants of what was once an opulent material culture. This culture best chronicles Cleopatra's legend and suggests her subtle but indelible mark on the art of imperial Rome at the critical moment of its inception.

This book is all about artwork, and the version doesn't have a single picture in it. not even in bad e-book version. WASTE OF MONEY
Clausius More than 1 year ago
It is interesting how two Romans Mark Anthony and Cesar of Rome carried ongoing relationships as lovers with her. The tragedies of the results of their glorious victories and glorious failures of suicide stand to reason throughout history
