The chapter, “Effigies of Atia and Servilia: Effacing the Female Body in Rome,” by Antony Augoustakis, unravels the nexus of female sexuality and feminine rivalry as depicted in the second season of the series Rome. This chapter focuses on the portrayal of the bitter feud between the two main female protagonists, Atia of the Julii and Servilia of the Junii. This chapter illuminates how their bodies are abused and ultimately controlled to underscore their de-sexualization and loss of power.
