The subject of this volume are the role models, values and norms to be found in Homer’s epics, and their manifold representation in terms of content and language. First of all the representations of a number of exceptional heroes and their most important characteristics and actions are analysed, before the description of the whole range and richness of important qualities and abilities such as enterprise, courage, insight, inventiveness, sense of justice, prudence, respect, truthfulness, reliability, friendliness, concern for others and sympathy are documented and discussed at length. Finally, the use of such concepts as ‘necessary’, ‘right’, ‘appropriate’, ‘desirable’ and ‘useful’ is considered, as well as the meaning of recognition and fame. The aim of the book is to reveal in detail the ideals, as well as the moral attitudes and values, that have led to Homer’s epics having such an effect not only on the literature of the Greeks, but also on their views on educational ideals and ethical norms over the centuries.

This volume of papers deals with the media strategies which were employed to help overcome a difficult initial situation and to master the crisis, thus establishing prosperous conditions in Rome and the Empire. 18 contributions from classical philology, archaeology and ancient history examine the new aesthetical orientation of literature and art in the Flavian period as well as the self-representation of the Flavian dynasty.
