V.g., cover sl. abraded, sl. foxing to end papers only, internally unshaken and unworn. A standard work of reference for classicists, with terse but comprehensive descriptions and well annotated with sources and cross-references. Some of the entries are exquisitely scholarly, especially those describing profoundly obscure individuals. Achaemenid kings of ancient Persia are sadly given a somewhat perfunctory treatment. xx, 971 pp. As this is a heavy book, please ask for a transport quotation when ordering. View More...
