Summary
"This ... book vividly characterizes eleven women, spanning the period from the death of Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. to the third century A.D. and with an epilogue surveying empresses of later eras. The author's ... biographies reveal their remarkable contributions toward the legacy of Imperial Rome, often tinged with tragedy, courage, and injustice." "Drawing from a broad range of documentation, Jasper Burns has painted portraits of these exceptional women that are colorful, sympathetic, and above all profoundly human. The women and their worlds are brought visually to life through photographs of over 300 ancient coins and through the author's own illustrations."--Page 4 of cover
