Overview

The Athenian Woman argues that classical art should be viewed from an archaeological standpoint. Specific topics investigated include domestic labor, women's work outside the household, their relationships with men and seclusion. Accessible and lavishly illustrated, this provocative book is ideal for a variety of disciplines: classics, archaeology, art and women's studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'[The book encourages] us to think carefully about provenance in our interpretation of the vases and to use caution in our categorization of themes and images ... L[ewis] has done a tremendous service by calling attention to this lacuna in the scholarship.' - BMCR

'This is essential reading for anyone remotely interested in Greek social history, art and archaeology, or gender studies ... I shall certainly be putting it on a number of undergraduate reading lists.' - JACT Review
