How was mythology used by ancient Romans in their everyday lives? At Nemi to the south of Rome, the sanctuary of the goddess Diana provides us with a snapshot of Roman life and society. This album explores some of the fragments of objects found at the site of Diana’s temple, such as a street entertainer’s clay lamp, an ex-slave’s votive statue and a miniature model of the Temple itself. Containing significant clues about social mobility, these cult objects reveal how lower social classes used mythical stories to empower themselves.
This material forms part of The Open University course A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman worlds.
