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. Takacs, Alexandria in Rome.
