About the Author

Marilyn Skinner is Professor of Classics at the University of Arizona.


"The book is well-presented and well-written, with an image in each chapter, easily accessible sections and sub-sections within the chapters. As an early volume in the Women in Antiquity series, it has set the tone for future biographies of other key women." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review "Skinner, one of the most sophisticated and accomplished classical scholars today, is the perfect person to write the first full-length biography of Clodia Metelli. This is a careful, impeccably documented biography that confronts directly the political context of Clodia's life, explores Roman attitudes toward wealthy, sexually adventuresome women and deals effectively with the primarily hostile sources for her life. Scholars and students alike will find this biography as interesting for its content as for a model of persuasive scholarship. Essential." --CHOICE
