Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'There can be no question that with this splendid monograph on the shrine of Zeus Meilichios a very important part of the topography of ancient Athens was rescued from considerable scholarly and published confusion.'
Ronald S. Stroud, University of California, Berkeley.
'In its thorough and precise observation, the whole of this work is convincing and accurate to a high degree. The overall understanding of Zeus Meilichios seems right on target.'
The late Michael H. Jameson, Stanford University.
