The chapter, “Antony and Atia: Tragic Romance in Rome,” by Juliette Harrisson, traces the development of the centrally important relationship between Antony and Atia during the second season of the series Rome. This chapter shows how the relationship is staged as an echo of Octavian’s historical propaganda against Antony. However, it is clear that the series allows Atia (rather than Octavia) to assume the role of the Julian woman shamefully wronged and abandoned for the foreign temptress, Cleopatra.
