The chapter, “Windows and Mirrors: Illuminating the Invisible Women of Rome,” by Kirsten Day, turns its focus on the lower-class fictional women of the second season of the series Rome. This chapter reveals how lower-class female characters, such Eirene and Gaia, use their limited resources to establish their social status and sexual status. The chapter shows how the depiction of the strategies of these lower-class women provides an instructive complement to the more famous historical women in the series.

Keywords:   Rome, lower class, social status, Eirene, Gaia
