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.

Wescoat.'
