    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Why was the bloody struggle between the Amazons and Greeks among the most popular subjects for depiction on Roman sarcophagi? This study uses the extensive corpus of Amazon sarcophageal imagery as a source for examining key aspects of the history of bodies and the history of representations of violence. It provides insight into the radical transformation in ways of dealing with grief and death that took place during the Roman Empire.
