The Many Faces of Roman Palmyra Lecture

Located on a caravan route on the Syrian steppe, the city of Palmyra was a prosperous and cosmopolitan hub of the eastern Roman Empire. This talk by Dr. Maura K. Heyn, associate professor and department head of Classical Studies, UNC-Greensboro, will focus on the fascinating funerary portraits of the inhabitants of Palmyra, looking in particular at the ways in which the deceased would advertise their connections to places far afield with their jewelry, dress and hairstyles, and hand gestures. Admission is free.
