The talk will analyze the character of the Roman goddess of war, Bellona, in Statius's Thebaid and Valerius Flaccus's Argonautica as a marker of the Roman cultural past. I will also discuss several contemporary parallels in Flavian-era material culture and Roman religious history.

Time: 5:00 pm

Location: Olin, Room 102
