Description

Drawing on case studies and presenting archaeological evidence throughout, Alan Greaves presents a welcome survey of the origins and development of Miletos.

Focusing on the archaic era and exploring a wide range of issues including physical environment, colonizations, the economy, and its role as a centre of philosophy and learning, Greaves examines Miletos from prehistory to its medieval decline.

Reviews

'The merit of Greaves' book … is that is offers a relatively brief, clearly written and well annotated overview of the archaeology of the site and the current state of affairs, within an interpretative framework.' - Tijdschrift voor Geschiedenis
