Banquettes were an important part of the representation of classical rulers. In this function they are reconstructed from the sources, systematically presented and analysed here for the first time. In the process, the question of the possible existence of a genetic relation between the Hellenic 'deipnon basilikon' and emporer's convivium is considered, and also whether these events constitute uniformly structured institutions. It provides insights not only into the 'table customs' of kings and emperors, but also into the expectations of and the manner in which different rulers self-conceptions were manifested in the ritual life of their courts and houses.

Das Essen wird in der römischen Literatur häufig als Symbol für nicht-kulinarische Sachverhalte verwendet. So repräsentiert die Erwähnung besonders zubereiteter Speisen gewisse Verhaltensweisen des Verzehrenden. Werner Tietz untersucht den Zeichencharakter von Essen in der römischen Gesellschaft und dessen Bedeutung für die soziale Kommunikation unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Diskurses über den mos maiorum, die um 200 v. Chr. erstmals zu beobachtende Auseinandersetzung mit den Kulturgütern der hellenistischen Welt. Dabei geht er u.a. auf Prestige und Gabentausch, die Unterschiede zwischen Römern und Nichtrömern sowie zwischen Städtern und Landbewohnern und auf die Definitionen von Übermaß und Ekel ein. Auf diese Weise erschließt das Buch neue Aspekte der römischen Kulturgeschichte.

Interest in food and drink as an academic discipline has been growing significantly in recent years. This sourcebook is a unique asset to many courses on food as it offers a thematic approach to eating and drinking in antiquity. For classics courses focusing on ancient social history to introductory courses on the history of food and drink, as well as those offerings with a strong sociological or anthropological approach this volume provides an unparalleled compilation of essential source material. The chronological scope of the excerpts extends from Homer in the Eighth Century BCE to the Roman emperor Constantine in the Fourth Century CE. Each thematic chapter consists of an introduction along with a bibliography of suggested readings. Translated excerpts are then presented accompanied by an explanatory background paragraph identifying the author and context of each passage. Most of the evidence is literary, but additional sources - inscriptional, legal and religious - are also included.
