Review quote

"Should remain for many years the standard English-language reference work on the topic." - Chester F. Natunewicz, Classical World "A valuable resource for historians of culture, the arts, and religion. The editors draw on the expertise of archaeologists, anthropologists, and historians in this interdisciplinary study of everything from hairstyles, jewelry, and accessories to literature and geography." - Biblical Archaeological Review
