The Routledge History of the Ancient World

Series Editor: Peter Thonemann

Designed for undergraduate and upper-level school students, the volumes in this series provides a complete history of the ancient world.

From the beginning of recorded history to the end of the end of the sixth century AD, the series includes voumes on both the ancient near east, and on late antiquty.

Emphasis is put on the plentiful quotation of original source material in translation, and the full notes and bibliography enable students to pursue further topics independently.
