Friends of Antiquity Sunday Series seminar

Presenter: Associate Professor Tom Hillard (Macquarie University)

Augustus transformed Rome (‘I found a city of brick and left a city of marble’) and its political system. But Rome wasn’t re-built in a day. ‘Hasten slowly’ was a favourite saying of the man. In 2014, on August 19th, we commemorated the 2000th anniversary of his death, and it seems the right moment to contemplate the passage of time — and time’s part.
