Abstract

Livia's Garden Room at Prima Porta, a consummate work of Second Style Roman wall painting, is here analyzed as a complex example of Augustan visual meaning. Parallels with actual plantings in the city of Rome, especially at the House of Augustus on the Palatine, provide a framework; possible connections between the miraculum for which the Villa was named, its laurel groves, and the famed ad Gallinas statue of Augustus, found not far from the entry to the underground Garden Room, are also explored, in light of the highly constructed horticultural discourse of Augustan Rome.
