"Dr. Garman has comprehensively reviewed the surviving evidence, seeking to discern the cult's nature and its regional appeal. He has deftly applied insights drawn from ancillary disciplines like toponymy, omnastics, surveying, iconography, and epigraphy." - Lawrence Okamura Columbia, Missouri "Garman's survey of stone altars from the second and third centuries sheds light on both dedicants and artists, who struggled to translate their concerns with fertility and the afterlife into classical visual terms." - Dr. Marcus Rautman Professor, Late Antique and Byzantine Art University of Missouri-Columbia "Like any well-trained historian of the Roman Provinces under the Empire, Garman avoids rhapsodic speculation and focuses attention on the limited but important topics that can be addressed through careful and ingenious study of the largely mute surviving evidence." - Charles G. Nauert Professor Emeritus of History University of Missouri-Columbia"Reseña del editor:
