Book Description

These forty-one tales written in the second century AD by Greek author Antoninus Liberalis and translated from the Greek for the first time, offer an unusual insight into the preoccupations and legends of antiquity. These tales are quirky, exciting and sometimes disturbing. Many have relevance for modern as well as classical understanding of psychology and the imagination. Each story is usefully provided with full annotation and commentary.
