Domestic and Divine: Roman Mosaics in the House of Dionysos

Synopsis

Christine Kondoleon presents the extraordinary mosaics of the House of Dionysos on Cyprus in a multifaceted study that explores their technique, style, iconography, architectural setting, chronology, and social import. This richly textured exploration provides a compelling reconstruction of the social and political aspirations of Romanized aristocratic patrons of the first and second centuries. It will be a landmark for the contextual study of Roman art.-Elaine K. Gazda, editor of Roman Art in the Private Sphere
