"This convenient selection of Lewis's most influential and original work will be extremely handy for historians and epigraphers." David F. Graf, Religious Studies Review
"This volume of a master's works will serve as an important collection for scholars of ancient history." Journal of Near Eastern Studies
"...combining precise and meticulous attention to the most technical details of Greek and Persian governmental institutions with a clear sense of the historical context to which they belong. As a consequence Selected Papers in Greek and Near Eastern History will join David Lewis' other works on Ancient historians' short list of indispensible works." Stanley M. Burstein, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
David M. Lewis was one of the foremost historians of the ancient world, and was uniquely expert in both Greek and Near Eastern history. The papers selected for this volume (four of them previously unpublished) illustrate the range and quality of his work on Greek and Near Eastern history and his particular expertise in dealing with inscriptions, ostraka and coins. His interests were wide, and there is material here for students of ancient Greek religion and literature, as well as historians, epigraphists and orientalists.
