Volume 97 of Harvard Studies in Classical Philology is a special issue, entitled “Greece in Rome,” comprising revised versions of papers presented at a Loeb Classical Conference on the question of the Greek influence on Roman culture, with a particular though not exclusive emphasis on the Augustan period. The papers reflect the complexity of the relationship between the cultures involved—Greek, Roman, and Italic—and span many fields: history, literature, philosophy, linguistics, religion, and the visual arts.

Contributors include: G. W. Bowersock, “The Barbarism of the Greeks”; John Scheid, “Graeco Ritu: A Typically Roman Way of Honoring the Gods”; Calvert Watkins, “Greece in Italy outside Rome”; Gisela Striker, “Cicero and Greek Philosophy”; Brad Inwood, “Seneca in His Philosophical Milieu”; Bettina Bergmann, “Greek Masterpieces and Roman Recreative Fictions”; Elaine K. Gazda, “Roman Sculpture and the Ethos of Emulation: Reconsidering Repetition”; Ann Kuttner, “Republican Rome Looks at Pergamon”; Cynthia Damon, “Greek Parasites and Roman Patronage”; Richard F. Thomas, “Vestigia Ruris: Urbane Rusticity in Virgil’s Georgics”; R. J. Tarrant, “Greek and Roman in Seneca’s Tragedies”; Christopher P. Jones, “Graia Pandetur ab Urbe”; Albert Henrichs, “Graecia Capta: Roman Views of Greek Culture”; and Sarolta A. Takács, “Alexandria in Rome.”
