3 A. G. Marvell & H. S. Owen-John LEUCARUM Excavations at the Roman Auxiliary Fort at Loughor, West Glamorgan 1982-84 and 1987-88
Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies 1997 0907764215 / 9780907764212 Softcover Near Fine 
Very light edgewear else Fine. Small crease to back upper corner. ; Britannia Monograph Series; 448 pages; The Roman fort at Loughor was founded in c. AD 75 and occupied continuously until the early 120s. The fort was then reduced and was reoccupied from c. 270 until the early fourth century. Excavation was concentrated on the defences and part of the interior. Detailed examination of the defences enabled useful analysis of construction methods. In the interior of the Flavio-Trajanic fort, a sequence of granaries was followed by a series of praetoria. Analysis of these buildings has enabled a reconsideration of the form and function of Commander's houses in auxiliary forts. This volume includes full reports on the finds which included coins, lamps, glass and intaglios.

19 Ando, Clifford IMPERIAL IDEOLOGY AND PROVINCIAL LOYALTY IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE
University of California Press 2000 0520220676 / 9780520220676 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
One small chip to DJ else Fine. ; Classics and Contemporary Thought; 1.57 x 9.37 x 6.31 Inches; 494 pages; The Roman empire remains unique. Although Rome claimed to rule the world, it did not. Rather, its uniqueness stems from the culture it created and the loyalty it inspired across an area that stretched from the Tyne to the Euphrates. Moreover, the empire created this culture with a bureaucracy smaller than that of a typical late-twentieth-century research university. In approaching this problem, Clifford Ando does not ask the ever-fashionable question, Why did the Roman empire fall? Rather, he asks, Why did the empire last so long? Imperial Ideology and Provincial Loyalty in the Roman Empire argues that the longevity of the empire rested not on Roman military power but on a gradually realized consensus that Roman rule was justified. This consensus was itself the product of a complex conversation between the central government and its far-flung peripheries. Ando investigates the mechanisms that sustained this conversation, explores its contribution to the legitimation of Roman power, and reveals as its product the provincial absorption of the forms and content of Roman political and legal discourse. Throughout, his sophisticated and subtle reading is informed by current thinking on social formation by theorists such as Max Weber, Jrgen Habermas, and Pierre Bourdieu.

20 Appian; J. S. Richardon APPIAN: WARS OF THE ROMANS IN IBERIA Iberike. with an Introduction, Translation and Commentary
Warminster Aris & Phillips 2000 0856687200 / 9780856687204 Softcover Very Good+ 
Faint yellowing to wraps. Very light crease to 1 corner of wraps. ; Viii, 184pp. Appian wrote his Roman History in the second century AD as a series of books arranged geographically to chronicle the rise of the Roman empire. His Iberike, of which this is the first translation with historical commentary in English, deals with the Romans' wars in the Iberian peninsula from the third to the first centuries BC. It is only continuous source for much of the history of this crucial period in one of the earliest regions of Rome's imperial expansion and so fills in the gap made by the loss of Livy's later books. He describes the major campaigns of the conquest from the defeat of the Cathaginians by Scipio Africanus, the wars against the Celtiberiansm the war against the Lusitanians under Virathus and the siege of Numantia. But its value is more than that of mere chronicler of otherwise obscure events, he was an historian who deserves to be studied in his own right. This is the first English translation of the book, presented facing the Greek text, and is accompanied by a historical commentary and copious notes. ; 184 pages
