The ancient Greeks were one of the most feared and respected sea-faring peoples of their era - they travelled widely and founded colonies in many far-away locations. One such area was the north coast of the Black Sea, where the Greeks traded and intermingled with the local Scythian population. "Greeks on the Black Sea" is a richly illustrated collection of essays that explore the Grecian archeology of the Northern Black Sea region and its history, culture, and art - including sculpture, pottery, gems, and jewellery. This volume presents an absorbing and intriguing look at an ancient world that was at once civilized and barbarian.
