Synopsis

The clothing and ornament of Greek women signalled much about the status and the morality assigned to them. Yet this revealing aspect of women's history has been little studied. In this collection of new studies by an international team, ancient visual evidence from vase-painting and sculpture is used extensively alongside Greek literature to reconstruct how women of the Greek world were perceived, and also, in important ways, how they lived.

Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones has established himself as a leading interpreter of Greek women's dress, and is author of a major study, Aphrodite's Tortoise: The veiled woman of Ancient Greece (CPW/Duckworth, 2003).
