Prof. Jake Nabel Awarded Loeb Fellowship

CAMS Assistant Professor Jake Nabel has been selected to receive a Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowship for the 2022/23 academic year. Awarded on a competitive basis, the Loeb Fellowship funds major research projects within the field of Greek and Roman studies. Its support will allow Prof. Nabel to complete his monograph, The Arsacids of Rome: Royal Fosterage and Interdynastic Kinship in Roman-Parthian Relations, for the University of California Press. A study of ancient interstate politics, the book reappraises the relationship between Rome and the Iranian empire of Parthia by foregrounding the careers of several Parthian princes who were sent to live at the court of the Roman emperor in the first century CE.
