Overview

This volume of sixteen papers is dedicated to James R. McCredie in celebration of his outstanding contribution to the excavation and study of the sanctuary of the Great Gods on the Greek island of Samothrace. The papers focus mainly on the art and archaeology of Samothrace, while two contributions discuss Alexandria in Egypt and Florina in Macedonia, two areas that were closely connected with Samothrace in antiquity. The volume covers the latest research on the architecture, sculpture, pottery, epigraphy and cult of the sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace, and contains many original architectural drawings and photos of previously unpublished material.

Editorial Reviews

Bryn Mawr Classical Review - Eva Winter
Samothracian connections were manifold and multivalent in antiquity, and they continue to reach far beyond the small island at the northeastern edge of the Aegean. Those connections have been supported and stimulated for nearly half a century by James R. McCredie. This is the overriding impression that this well-printed and richly illustrated book communicates, thanks to the admirable work of the honorand and the two editors, Olga Palagia and Bonna D. Wescoat.'
