* This paper was written during tenure of a Rome Scholarship at the British School at Rome and a Fellowship by Examination at Magdalen College, Oxford; I thank both institutions for their support. I am very grateful to Professors Örjan Wikander and Michael Winterbottom, and to an anonymous referee, for comments on an earlier draft of this article, to Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill for helpful discussion, and to Dr Mathilde Skoie for her assistance in translating some of the Swedish passages in Wikander’s 1980 publication. Remaining errors are, of course, mine alone.
