Abstract
The article focuses on the classical reception at the Caesars Atlantic City Hotel and Casino (CAC) in New Jersey. Topics discussed include the exterior displays and ancient theme of the building, the domination of three male leaders from the Roman history to the decoration and terminology of the building such as Roman General Julius Caesar, Roman Emperor Augustus, and the nonclassical King David, and CAC's choice of classical architectural elements and subjects.
