Very light shelfwear to book else fine. DJ has creasing along top edge. DJ has light edgewear with a couple of tiny chips. ; Xxxiii+150pp, 166 plates. First detailed study of how the ancient Samnites of the 4th century were depicted on pottery of the period. Mostly this means Campanian red-figure vase painting, although the author also discusses vases in other South Italian fabrics. Tomb-paintings also give us details, while references by ancient writers fill in some of the gaps in the information. Some items of Samnite armour and weaponry have survived and these allow us to assess the reliability and realism of the iconographic record. ; Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies Supplement 61 / Accordia Specialist Studies on Italy 2; 266 pages
