Summary
While books about the gods of antiquity abound, there are few works that give us entrance to the classical world as it existed in the personalities and deeds of its most important citizens. With the arrival of Who's Who in the Classical World, all this is changed. This volume holds biographical entries on nearly 500 individuals of central importance from the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, including writers, thinkers, artists, scientists, statesmen, kings, queens, and other historical figures. Furthermore, these entries offer far more than simple biographical information: many are short essays covering major historical and cultural themes centered around individuals as varied as Herodotus, Socrates, Plato, Alexander the Great, and Augustus. Drawing on the latest edition of the Oxford Classical Dictionary, this book offers authoritative and accessible scholarship from over 190 world experts on their subjects, providing an invaluable guide to the names and achievements of the leaders of the classical world
