Ancient Art

Lillian Sellati studies ancient Roman art with a focus on materiality.  She is particularly interested in the Romanization of foreign ideas as expressed through artwork, especially in the provinces.  She received a B.A. in Classical Civilizations with a minor in Anthropology from Cornell University (2014).  She has received the James E. Rice Jr. ’30 Prize for an essay entitled “Beauties and Beasts: Physical Reflections of an Internal State of Being” and a Harry Caplan Travel Fellowship to conduct research which culminated in a paper entitled “The Shifting Value of Coinage in Iron Age Post-Roman Britain and Scotland.”
