The figural frieze of the Basilica Aemilia : a new perspective in building context and pentelic marble
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this Master's Report is to examine the figural frieze from the Basilica Aemilia in the Roman Forum. Despite the fact that scholars have studied the frieze for over sixty years, many issues remain, particularly its date. Therefore, I have reviewed the bulk of the previous scholarly discussions, summarized the material of this fragmentary frieze, and emphasized the concrete details. Subsequently, I have analysed the frieze in the context of its building and its material, Pentelic marble, in order to argue for the date of 55-34 BC.
