Dr. Riccardi holds a B.A.(Ohio State University), M.A. (Ohio State University), and Ph.D.(Boston University) in Art History. In her graduate work, she concentrated on Greek and Roman art and archaeology, and spent three and a half years as a member of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Greece. She is also a practicing archaeologist, and has worked on several archaeological projects in Greece, including Isthmia, Nikopolis, and the Athenian Agora, where she was a staff member from 1994-1998. She continues to work on Agora material and is currently publishing some of the recent finds. The major theme of Dr. Riccardi’s research involves the study of the portraits and propaganda of Roman emperors and their families, particularly as depicted in the Greek world. She has written several articles on different aspects of this topic, and is currently working on a manuscript about the significance and appearance of various wreaths and crowns worn by the rulers of the Roman Empire.
