"Mantha Zarmakoupi's volume on villas and landscapes around the Bay of Naples is an essential examination of the architecture and decoration of some of the best-known Roman elite villas, appraised through a thoughtful social-historical lens ... The volume is thoughtful in its combination of architectural description with the literary, material, and cultural contextualization of life in luxury villas." - Francesca C. Tronchin, The Classical Journal
