about

A unique, fully illustrated, and fascinating study of all the known carved reliefs decorating official inscriptions in classical and Hellenistic Athens. The author's new and illuminating work on the iconography of these reliefs shows how the gods, heroes, and other personifications were notsimply decorative, but integral to the overall political message.
Carol L. Lawton is at Lawrence University, Wisconsin.
