The papers collected in this volume originate from two conferences held at Harvard University and at the University of Bologna in 2007 and organized by Nino Luraghi and Riccardo Vattuone. Support for the events and for a particularly long editorial process has been provided by the Loeb Fund of the Department of the Classics, Harvard University, the Magie Fund of the Department of Classics, Princeton University, the University of Bologna, and the Banca Popolare dell’Emilia Romagna, and is here gratefully acknowledged. For complex editorial work, thanks are due to Daniel Tober and Jessica Wright (both Princeton) and Pietro Liuzzo (Bologna). Jill Curry Robbins of CHS has provided help, guidance, and editorial and more generally moral support well beyond any reasonable definition of the call of duty. The contributors to this enterprise have showed matchless patience. It is the editor’s hope that they will consider their forebearance rewarded at least in part by the present volume.
