Review of Emily Hemelrijk, Hidden Lives, Public Personae, Women and Civic Life in the Roman West
This book is the culmination of E. Hemelrijk’s examinations of non-imperial women in the Roman West over fifteen years. She has regularly published articles on all the topics included here, yet she energetically revisits them here and produces fresh analysis of her corpus of approximately 1,400 inscriptions coming from Italian and provincial cities from the late Republic to the late third century.
