Description:

Acoustic and visual signaling is one of the vital elements for the functioning of an army. This volume presents the first approach of this subject for the Roman army since the works of A. von Domanzevski (from the end of the 19th century). The geographic (the provinces of the former Roman Empire, from Italy to Britannia and from Spain to Egypt) and the chronological frames (1st century BC to 4th century AD) as well as the holistic investigation of the ancient sources regarding the categories of underofficers in the Roman army called generically musicians and standard bearers are the main coordinates of the book. The novelty is given both by the synthesis of the existing information on the Roman military musicians and standard bearers and by the study of their depictions and of the archaeological finds of musical instruments and standards, many of them yet unpublished.

The three constitutive parts are: studies on terminology, function and rank in the Roman army and the iconography of the two categories of soldiers, the catalogues of the investigated sources (inscriptions, representations, finds of musical instruments and standards) and the illustrative part.
