Corpus Fellow in Ancient History Publishes New Book


Corpus is pleased to announce the publication of Statues and Cities: Honorific Portraits and Civic Identity in the Hellenistic World by Dr John Ma, Fellow and Tutor in Ancient History.

The book combines archaeology and art history as well as epigraphy to explore the phenomenon of portraits in ancient art within the historical and anthropological context of city-states honouring worthy individuals through erecting statues, and the development of families imitating this practice.

Statues and Cities is part of Oxford University Press' series, Studies in Ancient Culture and Representation, which comprises significant interdisciplinary research into the visual, social, political, and religious cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world.

Further information on Statues and Cities can be found on the Oxford University Press website.
