About the Author

Marden Fitzpatrick Nichols is Assistant Professor of Classics at Georgetown University, Washington, DC. She works primarily on the literature, art, and culture of Ancient Rome.


'Nichols has produced an exceptional book that will inevitably shape the scholarly conversation about Vitruvius the author for some time to come.
