Abstract:

This revised edition has numerous corrections and updates throughout. It provides both scholars and non-specialists with a comprehensive source of reference including treatments of broad thematic subjects relevant to the modern reader, aiming to answer all questions about the classical world. It contains over 6,200 entries written by the very best of classical scholars from all over the globe. All areas, regions, and cultures are represented beyond the core areas of Greece and Rome on subjects relevant to the 21st century. Most entries give references to ancient sources, and all but the shortest entries are followed by full bibliographies written with the modern reader in mind, with all Latin and Greek words translated. --Résumé de l'éditeur.
