Review quote

"The stimulating, thoughtful, and well-written essays of this volume will inspire still further work on Pausanias.... For anyone undertaking such work this book will be essential background reading, and it will also be rewarding reading for anyone interested in the era of the Second Sophistic and in the reception of antiquity in the modern age."show more
