Synopsis

Providing a vibrant new perspective on women in the classical world, ""A to Z of Ancient Greek and Roman Women, Revised Edition"" includes more than 500 fascinating life stories ranging from pagan Greece in the seventh century BCE to the rise of Christianity in the fourth century CE. Included in this accessible and user-friendly dictionary are tales from all corners of the Greek and Roman worlds - from Britain and Egypt to Syria and Mauritania. The authors of this invaluable reference guide have created multidimensional and intriguing biographies of women from all walks of life - poets and poisoners, wives and mistresses, businesswomen and slaves, rulers and victims - all noted for their accomplishments as well as their family ties.This new edition includes approximately 100 new biographies, a revised introduction, an expanded bibliography, updated further readings, an index, and new photographs and maps. New entries highlight biographies of women throughout the Mediterranean who participated in the violent formative years of Christianity during the fourth and fifth centuries. In addition, biographies of women memorialized in inscriptions and recorded on papyri have been added to those appearing in the literary sources, both in the earlier and later centuries.
