Mistaken Identities: How to Identify a Roman Emperor (Mary Beard)

On September 29, 2011, the well-renowned Classicist Mary Beard discussed the difficulties of identifying old roman sculptures and what she believes this process tells us about ancient cultures. The lecture was put on by the Stanford University Department of Classics and was part of the Lorenz Eitner Lectures on Classical Art and Culture series. The Eitner lecture series was founded to publicize classics and scholarship to a wider public audience.
