Editorial Reviews

Yet, however unsatisfactory the definition ofAncient History may be (seen from the angle of an Assyriologist, anEgyptologist, or an Iranologist), the appearance of thiswell-edited, wide ranging and most interesting volume is afelicitous event, proving that under the reign of Wikipedia thereis still need to replace the dethroned Pauly-Wissowa with generalstudies of the highest quality. Assyriologists, Egyptologists, andIranologists will certainly find much useful material here for themas well.”  (Scripta Classica Israelica, 2012)
