52 Ashton, Sally-Ann PETRIE'S PTOLEMAIC AND ROMAN MEMPHIS
Institute of Archaeology, University College London 2003 0905853407 / 9780905853406 Softcover Very Good 
Pencil marginalia to some pages. Includes cd in back sleeve. Minor creasing to wraps and base of spine. ; Memphis was one of the great melting pots of Mediterranean and African culture during the reigns of the heirs of Alexander and under the Roman Empire, a vibrant and complex community well after the end of the age of its ancient Pharaonic founders. For too long, its importance during this critical period has been wrongly eclipsed by the younger city of Alexandria. This book challenges such assumptions by taking a closer look at Memphis through the lens of the rich material excavated there by Flinders Petrie over a century ago, and exhibited in University College London’s Petrie Museum. These finds bring alive the diversity of the city’s inhabitants and raise questions, still relevant today, about the representations and realities of ethnic groups. This book presents the excavation background to the finds, their manufacturing processes and their cultural implications. It is accompanied by a CD ROM that illustrates this informative and neglected material. ; UCL Institute of Archaeology Publications; 120 pages

73 Barringer, Judith M. & Jeffrey M. Hurwit (Eds. ) PERIKLEAN ATHENS AND ITS LEGACY Problems and Perspectives
University of Texas Press 2005 0292706227 / 9780292706224 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very minor shelfwear to DJ. Small tiny ding to front board else Fine. ; 330 pages; The late fifth century BC was the golden age of ancient Athens. Under the leadership of the renowned soldier-statesman Perikles, Athenians began rebuilding the Akropolis, where they created the still awe-inspiring Parthenon. Athenians also reached a zenith of artistic achievement in sculpture, vase painting, and architecture, which provided continuing inspiration for many succeeding generations. The specially commissioned essays in this volume offer a fresh, innovative panorama of the art, architecture, history, culture, and influence of Periklean Athens. Written by leading experts in the field, the articles cover a wide range of topics, including: * An evaluation of Perikles' military leadership during the early stages of the Peloponnesian War. * Iconographical and iconological studies of vase paintings, wall paintings, and sculpture. * Explorations of the Parthenon and other monuments of the Athenian Akropolis. *The legacy of Periklean Athens and its influence upon later art. * Assessments of the modern reception of the Akropolis. As a whole, this collection of essays proves that even a well-explored field such as Periklean Athens can yield new treasures when mined by perceptive and seasoned investigators.

77 Ben-Dov, Jonathan & Wayne Horowitz & John M. Steele (Eds. ) LIVING THE LUNAR CALENDAR
Oxbow Books 2012 1842174819 / 9781842174814 Softcover Near Fine 
Very light edgewear else fine. ; 387 pages; Lunar calendars suffer from an inherent uncertainty in the length of each month and the number of months in the year. Variable atmospheric conditions, weather and the acuity of the eye of an observer mean that the first sighting of the new moon crescent can never be known in advance. Calendars which rely on such observations to define the beginning of a new month therefore suffer from this lack of certainty as to whether a month will begin on a given day or the next. The papers in this volume address the question of how ancient and medieval societies lived with the uncertainties of a lunar calendar. How did lack of foreknowledge of the beginning of the month impact upon administration, the planning of festivals, and historical record keeping? Did societies replace the observation of the new moon crescent with schematic calendars or calendars based upon astronomical calculations and what were the ideological and practical consequences of such a change? The contributors to this volume address these topics from the perspectives of a variety of Ancient Near Eastern, Jewish, Ancient and Medieval European, Asian and American cultures.

90 Berndt-Ersoz, Susanne PHRYGIAN ROCK-CUT SHRINES Structure, Function, and Cult Practice
Brill Academic Publishers 2006 9004152423 / 9789004152427 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Unwrapped in plastic. ; Culture and History of the Ancient Near East; 11.25 x 1 x 8.5 Inches; 438 pages; This volume explores the Iron Age Phrygian rock-cut monuments in Anatolia and defines their role in religion. Among other features this book questions the traditional view of the Mother goddess Kybele being the only Phrygian deity. A detailed analysis based on the monuments provides new interpretations and aspects of Phrygian religion: the Mother goddess was not alone, but rather accompanied by a Superior male god. For the first time all known Phrygian rock-cut monuments are brought together in the useful corpus with plenty of illustrations. It is a unique and significant contribution to the study of Phrygian religion and spatial conceptualization and is useful both for those interested in Anatolian culture and archaeology but also in fields such as classical religion and archaeology.
