Instructor: Herbert Benario, Professor Emeritus of Classics, Emory University
Women could play no role in the Roman army, but there was one instance when a woman prevented a disaster. Other peoples, however, did follow female warriors. We shall discuss seven all told: Dido, from Vergil’s Aeneid, Cleopatra, Thusnelda, Agrippina the Elder, Boudica, Cartimandua, and Zenozia. The class wil be largely lecture; there will be handouts.
