Ancient Greeks West and East (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum)
Gocha R. Tsestkhladze
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
This volume deals with the concept of 'West' and 'East', as held by the ancient Greeks.

To achieve a proper understanding of it requires study from every angle. All 24 papers in this volume combine different types of evidence, discussing them from every perspective: they are examined not only from the point of view of the Greeks but from that of the locals. The book gives new data, as well as re-examining existing evidence and reinterpreting old theories. The book is richly illustrated.
