520    According to legend, Rome was a settlement of warlike 
       young men, from Alba, an area in the Alban Hills just 
       southeast of Rome. When they settled there, they 
       inaugurated the earliest of Rome's traditions, including 
       the relationship between men and women. Any woman who 
       lapsed from the required level of "spectacular" virtue was
       fiercely punished, and the failings of women would often 
       be the center of Rome's legends, such as the battle 
       between the Horatii in Rome and the Curiattii in Alba in 
       the seventh century BC. Women of Ancient Rome describes 
       how early austerities gradually eased, yet retained the 
       authority of the Paterfamilias in family life, also how 
       the differing classes reacted to each other, exploring 
       religion and "outsiders" such as soldiers' wives, slaves, 
       prostitutes and how the poor coped with a world giving 
       them few personal choices. With chapters on family and the
       importance of stoicism over affection, marriage and 
       motherhood, priestesses, slaves and prostitutes, old age 
       and death, Lynda Telford analyzes the struggle for 
       survival of women from all classes under one of the oldest
       codified patriarchal systems devised.
