This collection of essays on classical Rome and its physical and literary legacy — by a distinguished group of philologists, art historians, and archaeologists — pays tribute to the career of Professor Katherine Allston Geffcken.

Contributors to this volume represent two successive academic generations as well as a wide variety of topics and analytical approaches. Many of the essays offer new readings of major Latin literary texts. Others illuminate the artistic, architectural, and archaeological achievements of the urbs antiqua aeternaque itself, including several that deal with the history of the American Academy in Rome.
