Antiquity in Popular Liter...

Debating with the Eumenide...

Modern Greek national and cultural identities consist, to a considerable extent, of clusters of cultural memory, shaped by an ongoing dialogue with the classical past. Within this dialogue between modern Greece and classical antiquity, Greek tragedy takes pride of place. In this volume, ten scholars from Cyprus, Greece, the United ...

Second in the series Varian Studies, this book discusses Elagabal’s architectural and sculptural artefacts in Rome. T...
