Editorial Reviews

'If one's mind can seem like a desert when the question of contributing to such a volume arises, it can easily feel spoilt for choice in contemplating the product of so distinguished a collective. The Pieces ... will take their place in the professional literature of their subjects, to go onbeing quoted, some ... for a very long time.'E.W. Handley, Trinity College, Cambridge, The Classical Review, Vol. XLIII, No. 1, 1993
