dc.description.abstractTraditionally, scholars portray the palaces of imperial Rome as spaces for interaction between the emperor and his elite guests while erasing the majority of the familia urbana that populated these sprawling structures: the slaves. Yet by examining the architecture and decorations of the palaces of Augustus and Nero in Rome, the lives of enslaved people can be reconstructed, restoring their centrality to the history of the early Principate.
