Lily van Diepen
M.A. University of Virginia (2016)
Lily is currently working on her master’s thesis, which she plans on completing by the end of this academic year. The paper is on a treaty, from 46 BC, between Lycia, a region on the south-western coast of Asia Minor, and Julius Caesar, which was inscribed on a bronze tablet and published in both Rome and Lycia. Lily remains fascinated by the criminal law of ancient Rome and has continued her work on the ’crimen maiestatis’ (crime of treason) under the emperor Tiberius, a topic which she hopes to write her dissertation on.
