RP 157: The Greeks in the East


Members' price *

  • A collection of important essays (selected from papers presented at a British Museum Classical Colloquium) that explore the role played by the Greeks in the eastern Mediterranean world from the Bronze Age to the classical period, presenting some of the latest archaeological research and discoveries. Trade, settlements, colonisation, and cultural and artistic interchange between the Greeks and their eastern neighbours are assessed in the light of finds of pottery, wall-paintings, jewellery, and other archaeological material. Studies assess both the actual presence of Minoans, Mycenaeans and later Greeks in the East and shed light on the economic and political interaction between Greeks and the peoples of Mesopotamia and Anatolia, the Hittite Empire, Phoenicia, Syria, and Achaemenid Persia.
