Rome Season Two

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter, “The Triumvirate of the Ring in Rome,” by Barbara Weiden Boyd, elucidates the significance of how the series Rome makes incisive visual use of Octavian’s sphinx seal and ring in the second season. The chapter demonstrates how the seal and ring are visually emphasized to affirm Octavian’s authority as the man chosen by destiny to rule Rome, and how the ring motif is also brought into play to symbolize the shifting Roman identities of Brutus and Antony.
