David M. Lewis was one of the foremost historians of the ancient world, and was uniquely expert in both Greek and Near Eastern history. The papers selected for this volume (four of them previously unpublished) illustrate the range and quality of his work on Greek and Near Eastern history and his particular expertise in dealing with inscriptions, ostraka and coins. His interests were wide, and there is material here for students of ancient Greek religion and literature, as well as historians, epigraphists and orientalists.
