Welcome to IMAGO

Photos of sites, monuments, inscriptions and objects from Rome and the Roman world available from the Roman Society's image bank for teaching and research.

As one of the Roman Society's centenary projects in 2010, a selection of slides from the Roman Society's slide collection in Joint Library was digitised. Since then, further slides have been donated to the collection.

You can search the collection using the keyword search function. There is also a complete list of images with details in the excel spreadsheet which you may download.

Use of images

You may use any of the images for your own purposes for teaching or research: there are no copyright constraints but we ask that you credit The Roman Society: IMAGO. If you wish to use an image in a publication, note that some images, for example, those from museums, will also be subject to the copyright restrictions of that institution so please contact them as well. We are not able to provide images in a higher resolution.


If you have your own slides which you would like to donate, please use the Donation Form function (individual upload). If you have a larger collection you wish to donate, please contact:
