- Editor's Preface
It is with great pleasure that we present to our readers another volume of Illinois Classical Studies. This is the second issue of the journal for 2019, and it is devoted to a reassessment of the legacy of the emperor of Domitian. The guest editors—Antony Augoustakis, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Emma Buckley, St. Andrews University, and Claire Stocks, University of New-castle—have brought together an international team of scholars working in archaeology, history, religion, epigraphy, and literary studies. The volume, titled "Un-damning Domitian: Reassessing the Last Flavian princeps," offers a novel, critical evaluation of the emperor's character and reception in the material and literary record. I am grateful to the guest editors for their efforts to bring this collection to fruition.
I would also like to thank all contributors and the anonymous reviewers for this issue for their constructive comments and feedback. I would like to thank once again Antony Augoustakis, Head of Classics as well as the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Associate Dean Martin Camargo in particular, for their continuing support. I wish to thank also Clydette Wantland, Kristen Dean-Grossmann, and the team at the University of Illinois Press for all their help and assistance. [End Page 232]
