The introduction includes source materials, secondary scholarship and a discussion of Fellini’s ‘signposts’ by which one recognises that the story, film, or game takes place in Ancient Rome, as games and entertainment are the usual signposts for Roman culture in modern media (and the ones subject to most misinterpretation drawing on Victorian rather than ancient sources). This chapter discusses Roman theatre, art and decoration, literature and writing, music and musicians, dinner parties and sport.
