This book contains catalogues, analyses, photographs and drawings of some 2,000 archaeological artefacts excavated from the Insula of the Menander in Pompeii. The catalogues, and analyses are organized by provenance - buildings, rooms, and location within rooms - so that the reader can understand the artefacts as household assemblages. The functions of artefacts and groups of artefacts are discussed, as are the Latin names which are often given to these artefacts, and the relationships of these assemblages to the state of occupancy of the buildings in the Insula during the last years of Pompeii. This study, therefore, provides a wealth of information, not only on the range and use of artefacts in Pompeian houses but also on Roman artefacts, and Roman society, more generally.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Allison's analysis and thorough illustrated catalogue - the list of plates and figures alone takes up 35 pages of print - goes a long way towards characterising the components of the insula, the domestic units, the large atrium houses and gardens... the workshops, taverns and storerooms. - Madeleine Hummler, Antiquity

many will regard the purchase of this volume as essential. - Ray Laurence, The Classical Review

A superb contribution to the study of Pompeii - Barbara Levick, St Hilda's College, Oxford
