Athens under the Tyrants

Athens under the Tyrants Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This introductory book in the Classical World series, aimed at late school and early university students, focuses on the colourful period of the Peisistratid tyranny in Athens. During these exciting years the great festivals were established, monumental buildings were erected, the population grew rapidly and there was lively progress in all the arts. This study considers the artistic, archaeological and literary evidence for the period. Athens is seen largely through the eyes of Herodotus, the 'Father of History', and we can observe the foundations being laid for the growth of democracy in the following century.
