About the Author

Claire Holleran currently holds a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the University of Liverpool. She is the co-editor of Demography and the Graeco-Roman World: New Insights and Approaches (Cambridge, 2011) with April Pudsey, and A Companion to the City of Rome (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012) with Amanda Claridge, and is the author of several articles on the social and economic history of Rome.


a conceptual point of reference that will certainly be of great value to studies on similar and related topics ... an important point of reference in future discussions on ancient urban economies. * Annalisa Marzano, Journal of Roman Studies *
Holleran gathers together an impressive range of material from all over the Roman Empire ... The forum in Rome itself was obviously buzzing with trade as much as with law and politics. A wonderfully vivid range of epitaphs introduce us to some of the shopkeepers, craftspeople and characters who made their living out of retail in, or very near to, that ceremonial heart of the empire. * Mary Beard, London Review of Books *
... engagingly written yet thoroughly researched, this book is as relevant to the serious academic as it is accessible to the general enthusiast. * World Archaeology *
Holleran's book is the first analytical monograph in this oft-neglected field ... it is to be hoped that Holleran 2012 will become a widely used standard reference for years to come. * Miko Flohr, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
[Shopping in Ancient Rome] is a work to be applauded for its innovation, scholarship and depth and will long remain required reading on the urban economies of the ancient world. * Benedict Lowe, The Classical Journal *
