Painter's work is necessary, important and enlightening ... the book is a model of its kind. As well as dealing specifically with one find, it brings together in quite a small compass a summary of the recent advances in our knowledge of Roman silver tableware. Obviously of the first importance for anyone working in provincial Roman archaeology, Painter's approach should also be of great interest to scholars who study the luxury goods of far later periods of history ... Produced to the high standards we expect from this publisher, Painter's study will be a standard work within its field. * Journal of the British Archaeological Association 155 for 2002 *
Painter is a leading scholar in the field of silver plate and the catalogue of this find demonstrates his mastery of his subject ... an important publication and one that is most welcome. * The Antiquaries Journal *
