About the Author

T.J. Leary is Head of Classics at Hampton School and the author of Acts of the Apostles: Passages for Translation, also published by Bloomsbury.


Leary has set himself a heroic task, and... has rendered a very signal service to us all... this book is a fund of learning. -- Journal of Roman Archaeology
Through all the multifarious foods, wines and objects (or indeed slaves), [Leary] offers a comprehensive guide ... The commentaries and the rich introductions are really helpful for all readers who want to approach Martial as literature or for details of the Saturnalia or patronage in general. * Classics for All Reviews *
