3 Arce, Javier & Bertrand Goffaux (Eds. ) HORREA D'HISPANIE ET DE LA MÉDITERRANÉE ROMAINE
Casa De Velázquez 2011 8496820629 / 9788496820623 Softcover Very Good+ 
Upper corners slightly bumped else fine. ; Les horrea, édifices de stockage et de rangement, font partie intégrante des circuits d'approvisionnement du monde méditerranéen antique. Leur utilisation relève d'une nécessité économique et politique et renvoie à un contrôle des ressources exercé à différentes échelles, selon des logiques différenciées et pour des durées plus ou moins longues. À travers l'étude des différents types d'entrepôts de la période romaine, le présent ouvrage se propose d'analyser les logiques du stockage et les réseaux de distribution et de redistribution dans le monde méditerranéen. Il porte principalement sur la péninsule Ibérique, tout en offrant des points de comparaison avec l'Italie, l'Orient et l'Afrique. Il fournit ainsi un premier bilan sur les structures de stockage de l'Hispanie et ouvre également des perspectives plus larges sur le fonctionnement de l'économie et le rôle de l'État dans le monde romain. ; Collection De La Casa De Velázquez Volume 125; 352 pages

15 Callimachus; Annette Harder (Ed. ) CALLIMACHUS: AETIA Volume 1: Introduction, Text and Translation; Volume 2: Commentary
Oxford University Press 2012 0199581010 / 9780199581016 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
V1: Bumping to corners and along front edge of front board of book. V2: Bumping to corners and top of spine and edges of boards. DJs have shelfwear. ; Callimachus' Aetia, written in Alexandria in the third century BC, was an important and influential poem which inspired many later Greek and Latin poets. Papyrus finds show that it was widely read until late antiquity and perhaps well into the Byzantine period. Eventually the work was lost, but thanks to many quotations by ancient authors and substantial papyrus finds a considerable part of it has now been recovered. The aim of the present volumes is to make the Aetia newly accessible to readers. Volume 1 comprises an introduction dealing with matters such as the work's composition, contents, date, literary aspects, and its function in the cultural and historical context of third-century BC Alexandria, and a text of all the fragments of the Aetia with a translation and critical apparatus; while Volume 2 presents a detailed commentary, including introductions to the separate aetiological stories. ; 2 Volume Set COMPLETE; Vol. 01/02/2014; 1325 pages

16 Cartledge, Paul AGESILAOS AND THE CRISIS OF SPARTA
Duckworth 1987 0715620827 / 9780715620823 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Former owner's bookplate to inner cover. Else book is fine. DJ has light shelfwear with a couple of tiny chips. ; As one of the two Spartan kings, Agesilaos II presided over Sparta's greatest imperial expansion and its collapse as a major power. At his accession in 400 BC, Sparta had recently defeated Athens in the Peloponnesian War and was the undisputed leader of the Aegean Greek world; at the time of his death some forty years later, Sparta had been reduced to the status of a mere Peloponnesian squabbler, its role indistinguishable from that of any of a number of other Greek states. "Agesilaos and the Crisis of Sparta" is an account of this critical period of Greek history, focusing on a single career. Progressing both chronologically and thematically, the author reveals the principal aspects of Spartan politics and society and appraises the possible causes of Sparta's preciptous decline and fall. ; 520 pages

1 corner very slightly bumped. Pages faintly tanned. Minor shelfwear to book. DJ has light shelfwear. ; La prima parte affronta il totale riesame del Foro Romano e delle sue adiacenze nel periodo arcaico, nei secoli cioè che precedono e seguono immediatamente la formazione della città. La riconsiderazione globale delle testimonianze letterarie e archeologiche permette di ricostruire il quadro, in gran parte inedito - e per molti aspetti rivoluzionario - della struttura topografica (ma anche politica e religiosa) dell'area compresa tra il Campidoglio, il Palatino e la Velia: il luogo cioè dove sorse e conobbe il suo primo sviluppo la Roma delle origini. ; Lectiones Planetariae; 329 pages
