"This is an extremely significant contribution to the study of the early development of Greek sanctuaries, demonstrating the variability of the material expression of Greek religion from period to period, from region to region, and even within a local setting" Blanche Menadier, JHS 121 (2001), p. 211.
"This book contains a wealth of thought-provoking information and interpretations. There is no doubt that it will come to occupy an important place in discussions of early Greek sanctuaries. The agenda and methods set out here point the way to what can be achieved in the future, and it is beyond dispute that this work will serve as one of the very models from which such work will proceed." Franco de Angelis, Phoenix 54 (2000), p. 365.
