Responses to Colonization in the Iron-Age Mediterranean by Tamar Hodos

The first study to bring together such a breadth of data, this book compares responses to colonization in the Iron-Age Mediterranean.

From North Syria to Sicily and North Africa, Tamar Hodos explores the responses to these colonies in areas where Greeks and Phoenicians were in competition with one another via the same local communities.

Highlighting the diversity of interest displayed by local populations in these foreign cultural offering, Hodos charts their selective adaptation, modification and reinterpretation of Greek and Phoenician goods and ideas as their own cultures evolve.

For students of archaeology and history, this will provide an essential resource for their degree course studies.
