This volume explores the nature of female beauty in ancient Rome by studying depictions of heavenly and earthly women in Pompeiian art. The first section discusses the care of the body: hygiene, cosmetics, coiffure, and perfume. The second section discusses adornments like jewelry and clothing, and explains how such items were distributed in the Roman world. Here, archaeology and art come together to offer numerous insights into this fascinating subject.
