    Review quote
    Borgeaud has read widely and chooses judiciously from among an array of pictorial and written remains to construct a series of striking images that reveal and unravel the amazingly complex paths taken by the goddess and her companions during a millennium of antiquity. Choice 2005 This slim book is packed with terrific material... Flashes of insight are something Borgeaud does well. He also asks big questions. Times Literary Supplement 2005 A carefully researched and... persuasively argued book that will be of interest to academic libraries and scholars in the field. -- Joseph Molleur Anglican Theological Review 2005 Fascinating narrative... combined with the visually-striking jacket cover illustration... entices the potential reader. -- Daniel Keating Henoch 2007
