This work reconstructs the stages of the Ancient Greek wedding ceremony using a long-neglected source of information: vase paintings from the sixth through fourth centuries BC. It should be useful for scholars of Greek vases and to those interested in issues of women in Ancient Greece. There are explanations of technical vocabulary within the text and a glossary of Greek terms is included.

Review quote

"The work is a must for the scholar of Greek vases and iconography but will also be essential to those interested in issues of women in ancient Greece. Non-professionals will appreciate the explanations of technical vocabulary within the text and a glossary of Greek terms, while those seeking further study will value the annotated text and full references to the images." - Sally P. Schultz, Religious Studies Review
