The principal purpose of the book is to open up ancient Georgia for the world of scholarship at large. It is not only the history of a neglected region, but also a sustained attempt to inform topics and issues that are more familiar to historians of antiquity: the myths of the periphery, particularly of Medea and the Golden Fleece; the Caucasus mountains and their passes; Greek colonization; the Persian, Athenian, and Seleucid empires; Pompey's conquest of Mithridates' empire; the development of the Roman frontier in the eastern Black Sea region; Roman diplomacy in Iberia; the Christianization of Iberia; and Sassanian ambitions in Transcaucasia and Byzantine warfare there."@en ;
