"It’s the first book which revisits Greek and Latin theories of signs from the point of view of a profound classical scholarship and a paramount knowledge of contemporary semiotics debates."—Umberto Eco

Available in English for the first time is Professor Manetti’s brilliant study of the origin of semiotics and sign theory.
