The contributions to this volume examine the phenomenon of copying in antiquity within a context that spans all periods and types of monuments. The methodology of differentiating between original and copy, as it was devised for research on Greek sculpture, is applied here to architecture, painting and epigraphy. Thus, the fifteen essays attempt to break with the traditional concept of differentiating between a (Greek) culture of originals and a (Roman) culture of copies. German text.
