The Jews of Ancient Rome, 1960

book cover with title

Author: Leon, Harry J.

By the 1940s, classical scholarship was paying closer attention to racial and ethnic minorities in the Greco-Roman world. Harry Leon was Chair of the UT Classics department from 1942-1962. Though his full bibliography includes some sixty-six items, Leon became especially known for his groundbreaking research on inscriptions relating to Jewish people in Rome, work begun in the 1920s but culminating in this book-length study from 1960.
