The Roman Emperor Seen From the Provinces. Imaging Roman Power in the Cities of the Empire from Augustus to the Tetrarchs (31 BC-AD 297)

Project description

Interpreting Roman imperial art from a provincial perspective

The EU-funded RESP project will provide the first comprehensive discussion on how the nature and significance of Roman power was viewed and interpreted in provincial cities both in the western and eastern regions of the Mediterranean from the reign of Augustus to that of Diocletian (c. 31 BC – AD 297). The project will carry out a comparative study of coinage and sculpture taking an interdisciplinary approach, combining classics, digital humanities and manufacturing studies. A new research methodology based on 3D imaging and modelling will also be introduced to reconstruct the genesis and production of imperial portraits crafted in the provinces.
