45 illustrations of authentic costumes, as depicted in ancient mosaics and sculpture, display attire of all classes-from simple tunics of early Christian commoners and body armor of Roman warriors to a pallium decorated with crosses, worn by a priest of the 10th century; and finely brocaded robe of a 12th-century Byzantine princess. Footwear, headgear, and hair styles are also presented in a collection sure to inspire and delight colorists and costume designers. Descriptive captions.
