Women's History and Ancient History

By Sarah B. Pomeroy | Go to book overview

ness about women who are both marginal and privatized and central and public. Historical relief, in what it shows and what it leaves out, mystifies gender relationships and at the same time expresses the ambivalent Roman attitude toward women.


Notes

My thanks, as ever, to John Dunnigan and Sharon Strom for discussing this material with me, to the members of audiences to whom versions of this essay were presented over the past few years, and especially to Elizabeth Bartman for obtaining photographs and to V. M. Strocka for graciously lending me his negatives for the friezes at Leptis Magna. New photos of the restored reliefs could not be obtained in time for the publication of this volume.

"Historical relief" is a modern term coined for sculpture that presents identifiable people as the actors in specific or typical happenings connected with public governance, cult, and the military. Historical reliefs usually appeared on public buildings, altars, and triumphal monuments such as the Column of Trajan and the Arch of Titus in Rome. Bibliography on the historical relief can be found in Gerhard Koeppel, "Official State Reliefs of the City of Rome in the Imperial Age: A Bibliography", in Aufstieg und Niedergang der römischen Welt (ANRW), edited by Hildegard Temporini and Wolfgang Haase ( Berlin and New York: Walter de Gruyter, 1982), II.12.1. 480-81. For recent work see Tonio Höscher, "Beobachtungen zu römischen historischen Denkmälern", Archäiologischer Anzeiger ( 1979): 337- 48, ( 1984) 2:283-94; Hölscher, "Die Geschichtsauffassung in der römischen Reprä- sentationskunst", Jahrbuch des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts 95 ( 1980): 265-321; and several publications by Gerhard Koeppel: "The Grand Pictorial Tradition of Roman Historical Representation during the Early Empire", ANRW II. 12.1 ( 1982): 507-35; "Die historischen Reliefs der römischen Kaiserzeit I: stadtömische Denkmäler unbekannter Bauzugehörigkeit aus augusteischer und julisch-claudischer Zeit", Bonner Jahrbücher 183 ( 1983): 61-144; "Die historischen Reliefs der römischen Kaiserzeit I: stadtrömische Denkmäler unbekannter Bauzugehörigkeit aus flavischer Zeit", 184 ( 1984): 1-65; "Die historischen Reliefs der römischen Kaiserzeit I: stadtrömische Denkmäler unbekannter Bauzugehörigkeit aus trajanischer Zeit," 185 ( 1985): 143-213; and "Die historischen Reliefs der römischen Kaiserzeit I: stadtrömische Denkmäler unbekannter Bauzugehörigkeit aus hadrianischer bis konstantinischer Zeit," 186 ( 1986): 1-90, as well as my own forthcoming study of provincial historical reliefs.
