Description

The edge of the Greek world was the northern shore of the Pontus Euxenius and the impact of the Black Sea was evident in the political, economic and cultural features of Bosporan society. The author uses evidence gathered from Bosporan tomb paintings, funerary stelai, terracotta figurines and representations on coins to demonstrate the interaction particularly between the Scythians and the Greeks (but also the Sindians and Maeotians) in the context of their warfare traditions. The evolution of weapons used, and the organisation of the army, is evident from the artefacts discussed. The book is divided into three sections; Part I is From the beginnings of Panticapaem to the end of the Spartocid Dynasty, Part II is The Reign of Mithridates VI Eupator and his successors. Bosporans in the army of the King of Pontus, and Part III is From the reign of Aspurgus to the end of the Bosporan Kingdom . The discussion is accompanied by many useful illustrations.
