Greek East and Latin West

"Greek East" and "Latin West" are terms used to distinguish between the two parts of the Greco-Roman world, specifically the eastern regions where Greek was the lingua franca, and the western parts where Latin filled this role. During the Roman Empire a divide had persisted between Latin- and Greek-speaking areas; this divide was encouraged by administrative changes in the empire's structure between the 3rd and 5th centuries, which led ultimately to the establishment of separate Eastern and Western halves of the Empire.

Women and the Roman City in the Latin West | American Journal of Archaeology

With the amount of papers and books discussing the subjects of female presence, visibility, and sociocultural influence in antiquity, gender certainly is not a neglected topic. Yet, too often imperial women and elite women of Rome have been the focus of attention, resulting in the marginalization of those living beyond Rome and Italy. The volume under review, which originated from a December 2011 Amsterdam conference entitled “Gender and the Roman City: Women and Civic Life in Italy and the Western Provinces,” will help remedy this imbalance.

Women and the Roman City in the Latin West | Brill

Roman Cities, as conventionally studied, seem to be dominated by men. Yet as the contributions to this volume—which deals with the Roman cities of Italy and the western provinces in the late Republic and early Empire—show, women occupied a wide range of civic roles. Women had key roles to play in urban economies, and a few were prominent public figures, celebrated for their generosity and for their priestly eminence, and commemorated with public statues and grand inscriptions. Drawing on archaeology and epigraphy, on law and art as well as on ancient texts, this multidisciplinary study offers a new and more nuanced view of the gendering of civic life. It asks how far the experience of women of the smaller Italian and provincial cities resembled that of women in the capital, how women were represented in sculptural art as well as in inscriptions, and what kinds of power or influence they exercised in the societies of the Latin West.
