Publisher Comments:

This selection of papers, by the distinguished historian of ancient Greece George Cawkwell, reflects a half-century of outstanding scholarship that is of immense value to anyone studying the ancient world today. The articles range from early Greek colonization in the sixth century BC, through the classical period and the wars with Persia, to the disastrous defeat of the Greeks by Philip II of Macedon at the battle of Chaeronea in 338 BC.

George Cawkwell is Emeritus Fellow, University College, Oxford.
