Description:

Language: English . Brand New Book. This study of an important class of ceramics from the key coastal colonial site of Cosa in southwest Tuscany documents the rise of Republican Rome to dominance in central Italy in the third and second centuries BC. Excavation and survey work by the American Academy in Rome and others at Cosa over the past half-century have greatly enriched our knowledge of the organization and exploitation of the resources of the countryside, and the patterns of economic exchange to which they testify. These latter are particularly evident in the varieties of imported and locally made black-glaze pottery that have been recovered in the excavations. Ann Reynolds Scott catalogues and analyzes five unpublished deposits of black-glaze pottery from Cosa. Her analysis includes comparative material from other sites and typological distribution charts of the various productions. She also reevaluates the deposits of pottery from the site that were previously published. Abundant evidence from Cosa and its territory and from north-central and south Italy also allows the author to put previously published black-glaze pottery from Cosa into its proper context and, with the new evidence, to consider the changing economic fortunes of the town after Italy had been re-secured from Hannibal for Rome. The book gives a general overview of the classes of black-glaze pottery and the present state of black-glaze pottery research in Italy. It will be a prime research tool for scholars working on ancient ceramics of this class and for historians of Republican Rome. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description University of Michigan Press, 2008. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. This study of an important class of ceramics from the key coastal colonial site of Cosa in southwest Tuscany documents the rise of republican Rome to dominance in central Italy in the third and second centuries B.C. The town and territory of Cosa constitute one of the most extensively explored sites of the Roman republican period on the Italian peninsula. Excavation and survey work by the American Academy in Rome and others at Cosa over the past half century have greatly enriched our knowledge of the development of public and domestic urban and rural architecture, the organization and exploitation of the resources of the countryside, and the patterns of economic exchange to which they testify. These latter are particularly evident in the varieties of imported and locally made black-glaze pottery that have been recovered in the excavations. While we tend to think of the ubiquitous Greco-Italic amphorae as the commercial indicators par excellence of mid to late republican Italy, this class of tableware is no less important for understanding both the maritime and inland routes of exchange. "Ann Scott presents our best picture of Late Republican black-glaze in central Italy from the third through the mid-first century B.C. In Cosa: The Black-Glaze Pottery 2 , she reassesses and updates the material published fifty years ago by Doris Taylor as well as presenting more recent deposits of black glazed pottery from Cosa." ---Shelley Stone, Professor of Art History, California State University, Bakersfield "This admirable study will quickly establish itself as the classic treatment of a topic of central importance for the archaeology of central Italy in the Roman republican period." ---Bernard Frischer, Director, Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities, and Professor of Art History and Classics, University of Virginia Condition: Good. Minor corner bumping. Dust-jacket worn and torn at one corner. Evidence of rubbing. The boards are crisp and clean and the pages are crisp and clean with slight yellowing to the fore-edge. A good tight binding. HD_100942990 D10. Bookseller Inventory # 009928
