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 Reviewshow more
