The Dictionary of Classical Mythologyby Pierre Grimal
The dictionary will be an essential companion to the study of Western literature and art, a significant part of which has always been concerned with the ancient myths and legends as a source of both subject- matter and allusion. But above all this book is a fascinating and readable guide to the rich and diverse legends and mythologies of the classical world.
"There has been nothing in English like Grimal's authoritative dictionary... this text will be an essential source for specialists and general readers alike... invaluable and sorely needed." Library Journal
