The Dedalus Book of Roman Decadence: Emperors of Debauchery

Author: Geoffrey Farrington

Translator: Brian Murdoch   Cover illustration: Gustave Moreau  

"...concentrates on the outrageous behaviour of the ruling class of the Roman Empire, as described in passages selected from the prose, poetry and history of the period. Their murder plots, sexual deviances, orgies, cruelty and incessant intrigue put our politicians and their peccadillos on a play school level."
