Servilia and her Family

Susan Treggiari
Oxford University Press
January 2019

Susan Treggiari's new book focuses on a key female figure in Roman history, shining new light on the place of women in late Republican society and the male-dominated political arena, offers a detailed examination of Servilia's life in the context of her times, covering not only her family, background, and the determinable events of her life, but also the limited evidence on her personality, and draws on detailed analysis of all ancient literary sources and engagement with a rich historiographical tradition.
