Following the confusion that accompanied the demise of the Julio-Claudian dynasty, the Flavians succeeded in restoring stability to Rome. 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.
