Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The two volumes supplement each other in an outstanding way, and the easily readable second volume rests firmly on the hard facts of the first. The texts touch upon a variety of topics of the socio-economic life of Hellenistic Egypt, and the extensive bibliographies help to find further information on things (seemingly) as far away from taxation as salt production or literacy in the ancient world.' Arctos
