The Samnites of the Fourth Century BC by G. Schneider-Herrmann

£25.00

Product description

The Samnites of the Fourth Century BC as depicted on Campanian Vases and in other sources by G. Schneider-Herrmann

Edited by Edward Herring; Foreword by A.D. Trendall. Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies Supplement 61 / Accordia Specialist Studies on Italy 2.

First detailed study of how the ancient Samnites of the 4th century were depicted on pottery of the period. Mostly this means Campanian red-figure vase painting, although the author also discusses vases in other South Italian fabrics. Tomb-paintings also give us details, while references by ancient writers fill in some of the gaps in the information. Some items of Samnite armour and weaponry have survived and these allow us to assess the reliability and realism of the iconographic record. The author covers Samnite costume, weaponry and armour. 

In very good condition with clean pages inside. Slight creases to the top front of dust jacket.
