More about the book
About the book
At the height of the Empire, Roman control extended over two-thirds of the Pontic shoreline. The advent of Rome brought immediate changes in administration, taxation and power relations.
Over time other less tangible, but no less important changes in lifestyle, modes of thought, self-perception and consumption patterns followed.
This volume traces the cultural impact of Rome on its Pontic dominions, as well as the reactions of the indigenous population.

Elias K. Petropoulos American Journal of Archaeology
"...a useful instrument in understanding how multi-identity cultures manage to live together... The reader of this volume will be able to find diversity regarding themes and methodologies, multiple cultural identities (from Achaemenids to contemporary analogies), and occasional disagreement in the authors' approaches, thus making the volume a precious tool for further thinking. The editor has done a good job and must be praised for this."
Christian Winkle Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"...die Vielfalt der Ansätze und inhaltlichen Schwerpunkte ist positiv zu vermerken, so dass der Band für alle an der antiken Geschichte der Schwarzmeer Region Interessierten eine Bereicherung darstellen wird. Die verschiedenen Indices zu Personen, Geographica und Quellem am Schluss erleichtern die Arbeit mit den Beiträgen des Bandes. Herausgeber und Verlag sind abschliessend ein Kompliment für di sorgfältig und ansprechende Edition des Bandes zu machen."
