About This Item

A.G. Leventis Foundation, 2004.  Conference Proceedings. In English. Soft cover, 20x26 cm, 424 pp.; net weight 1530 gr. ISBN: 9963-560-57-1.

A collection of 25 papers presented at an international symposium on Herodotus. The twenty five communications cover a very wide spectrum relating to Herodotus' Histories and wil condtitude an indispensable tool for historians, philologists, archaeologists and students of the ancient world in general. As Vassos Karageorghis explains in his eloquent if brief introduction, we need Herodotus as `a social anthropologist, a philosopher/companion' to help us to reassess the Greek world `with impartial serenity, with wisdom and good humour'. These well-presented essays focus on Herodotus presentation of Greeks and barbarians across the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean and discuss how this throws light on ancient Greek attitudes to themselves, to other cultures, to religion, to politics and to war. The papers are wide-ranging and cover Herodotus' treatment of Cyprus, Amathus, Athens, the Phoenicians and Scythia, his principles and attitudes towards violence, his realisation of the sacred landscape, his rhetoric of slavery, his strategies and use of lies, and his accounts of war.
