Item description for Imperial Women: A Study in Public Images, 40 B.c. - A.d. 68 (Mnemosyne, Supplements Mnemosyne, Supplements) by Susan E. Wood...

This volume traces the emergence and development of the public female portrait, from Octavia, the first Roman woman to be represented in propria persona on coinage, to the formidable and ambitious Agrippina the Younger, whose assassination demonstrated to later women the limits of official power they could demand. The text offers an account of how, from the end of the Roman Republic to the death of the last Julio-Claudian emperor, portraits of women - on coins, public monuments, and private luxury objects - became an increasingly familiar sight throughout the empire. These women usually represented the distinguished bloodlines of the head of state. The text considers how these objects also communicated social messages about the appropriate roles, behaviour and self-presentation of women.
