Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Into the aging body of reference literature on ancient Greek biography comes this up-to-date, inexpensive, authoritative, and comprehensive addition from Routledge's "Who's Who" series. Hazel, a classicist and coauthor of Who's Who in Classical Mythology, profiles (in alphabetical order) Greeks of historical, philosophical, and literary significance. Chosen for their impact (good or bad) on Greek society from 750 to 100 B.C.E., these figures range from the well known--like Alexander the Great, Socrates, and Plato--to the lesser known--like Bacchylides the lyric poet, Chares the general, and Ephalites the traitor. Hazel's portraits offer vivid biographical information and detailed discussion of the individual's achievements. Varying in length from a paragraph to a few pages, the entries are clear, interesting, and accessible to the general reader. In addition to a glossary, three appendixes feature a chronological table of Greek and Hellenistic times, a list of rulers, and three maps. Recommended for history collections.

Format: Hardcover
Although this is a very useful dictionary , I think the "Who's Who in the Roman World" is better to read.
Why ? The reason is evident. This book lacks a lot of interesting people and historical stories. E.G. ; You cannot find the entriy of PAMMENES the founder of the Sacred Band=Hieros Lokhos of Thebai. And in the article of PHILIPPOS 2nd of Macedonia , you cannot read the famous story of his murderer and beloved Pausanias who was raped by Attalos and his servants. Et aussi ,the compiler doesn't mention that Aristogeiton and Harmodios were lovers at all, as if we ,the readers are still live in the hypocritical Victorian age.
