This book is an archaeological and art-historical study of the images and monuments of Roman 'client' kings in the Near East from the Taurus to Edom in the important transitional period between the downfall of the Seleucid empire and Rome's establishment of provincial administration across the entire region. In this volume, Kropp treats royal portraits, tombs, palaces, coins, and temples as historical documents and aims at uncovering royal identities andideological aspirations. The images and monuments discussed show an endless variety of eclectic styles, shapes, and types - a result of individual, deliberate choices from an array of cultural and artistic options. The study of their origins and importance therefore places monuments likethe Khazneh at Petra or the Temple at Jerusalem in their proper context and allows a more nuanced understanding of their creation as expressions and constructions of royal personas.
