Edinburgh University Press

The chapter, “Gateways to Vice: Drugs and Sex in Rome,” by Alex McAuley, delves into the depiction of narcotics consumption in the second season of the series Rome. This chapter illuminates how the consumption of narcotics as portrayed in the series is frequently associated with sexual impropriety and juvenile delinquency. The chapter also investigates how the retrojection of this modern vice onto ancient onscreen elite Romans serves to uncover its origins and connotations within the world of the series.
