Athens and Macedon: Attic Letter-Cutters of 300 to 229 B.C.

by Stephen V. Tracy
 

Little of the historiography of third-century Athens survives, and much of what we know—or might know—about the period has come down to us in inscriptions carved by Attic stonemasons of the time. In this book Stephen Tracy, the world's preeminent expert in this area, provides new insight into an unsettled and obscure moment in antiquity.
