Product Description


"The work is a must for the scholar of Greek vases and iconography but will also be essential to those interested in issues of women in ancient Greece.  Non-professionals will appreciate the explanations of technical vocabulary within the text and a glossary of Greek terms, while those seeking further study will value the annotated text and full references to the images."—Sally P. Schultz, Religious Studies Review

"Oakley and Sinos have done a remarkable job with what evidence there is. The strength of the book lies in the figures and in their detailed analyses of them, and for this work we should be grateful. The book closes with a useful glossary of terms, a bibliography that is fairly complete and especially helpful because briefly annotated, and a fine index."—Kirk Ormand, Classical Philology

it's all in the urns June 24 2000
By shellie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
this book contains text and black/white plates. There is lots of text dealing with the various stages of the wedding in ancient Greece. The primary focus of the book is decoding the rituals depicted on various wedding urns. This books only fault is its organization. It would have been nice to have the text and plates incorporated into one another, versus the tedious separation that exists
