In a test case for the study of epichoric Greek history (that not centered on Athens and Sparta), Thomas Figueira deploys a range of disciplinary methodologies to explore the political history of the ancient island city-state of Aigina, down to the Roman conquest of Greece. Excursions in Epichoric History combines previously published articles, revised and updated, and new essays to provide a set of alternative perspectives on the course of Greek foreign policy and institutional history.
Thomas Figueira is professor of classics and ancient history, Department of Classics and Archeology, Rutgers University.

Editorial Reviews

On the positive side are the sheer range of evidence that F. deploys . . . his smartness and ingenuity in discovering Aeginetan angles in unpromising contexts, his clearsightedness . . . and his fruitful, even exciting, contextualisations of Pindaric epinicians within Aegineatan and Athenian politics.
