21 Bar-Kochva, Bezalel THE SELEUCID ARMY Organization and Tactics in the Great Campaigns
Cambridge University Press 1976 0521206677 / 9780521206679 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Slight browning to DJ. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. Very minor bumping to top corners of book. ; Cambridge Classical Studies; 318 pages; This is a study of the organization and tactics of the Seleucid armies from 312 to 129 BC. In the first part of the book Dr Bar-Kochva discusses the numerical strength of the armies, their sources of man-power, the contingents of the regular army, their equipment and historical development, the chain of command, training and discipline. In the second part he reconstructs the great campaigns (Ipsus, Cyrrhestica, Porphyrion, Molon, Raphia, the Elburz, Panion, Thermopylae, Magnesia, Beith Zacharia and Elasa) in order to examine and illustrate in detail the Seleucid tactics. The book provides a lesson in Hellenistic and military history and discusses a number of questions: How did the Hellenistic armies develop after Alexander? What distinguished the Seleucid army from its Hellenistic contemporaries and assured its superiority? The answers illuminate the expansion of Hellenism as we learn how the Seleucid army was used as a military, social and cultural instrument to impose the rule of the dynasty over the vast regions of the Empire and how it helped to shape Hellenistic society in the East.

22 Barré, Michael L. (Barre) THE GOD-LIST IN THE TREATY BETWEEN HANNIBAL AND PHILIP V OF MACEDONIA A Study in Light of the Ancient Near Eastern Treaty Tradition
The Johns Hopkins University Press 1983 0801827876 / 9780801827877 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Bumping to top corners and textblock. Minor edgewear to extremities. Former owner's name on ffep. ; In 215 BC in the second Punic War, Philip V of Macedonia sent an emissary to Hannibal in order to form an alliance with the Carthaginian general. This alliance was formalized in a treaty, the document which provides the corpus for this study. In this treaty is a list of "divine witnesses", which comprise the "official pantheon" of Carthage. The organization of the material and the presentation of the god-lists of all the treaties in a series of charts in Appendix I as well as the extensive indexes and bibliography make the book a useful reference work. Any further treatment of West Semitic pantheons will have to take this study seriously and all who are interested in Near Eastern religion will consult this work with great profit. ; The Johns Hopkins Near Eastern Studies; 10.5 x 0.75 x 7.25 Inches; 236 pages

23 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.

25 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.

Belknap Press 2000 0674511735 / 9780674511736 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Book has very light shelfwear else fine. DJ has 1 tiny chip and faint crease along upper edge. ; The first book of its kind, this richly informative guide to the world of late antiquity offers the most recent scholarship to the researcher along with sheer reading pleasure to the browser. In eleven comprehensive essays and in over 500 encyclopedic entries, an international cast of experts provides essential information and fresh perspectives on the history and culture of an era marked by the rise of two world religions, unprecedented political upheavals that remade the map of the known world, and the creation of art of enduring glory. By extending the commonly accepted chronological and territorial boundaries of the period-to encompass Roman, Byzantine, Sassanian, and early Islamic cultures, from the middle of the third century to the end of the eighth-this guide makes new connections and permits revealing comparisons. Consult the article on "Angels" and discover their meaning in Islamic as well as classical and Judeo-Christian traditions. Refer to "Children, " "Concubinage, " and "Divorce" for a fascinating interweaving of information on the family. Read the essay on "Barbarians and Ethnicity" and see how a topic as current as the construction of identity played out in earlier times, from the Greeks and Romans to the Turks, Huns, and Saxons. Turn to "Empire Building" to learn how the empire of Constantine was supported by architecture and ceremony. Or follow your own path through the broad range of entries on politics, manufacturing and commerce, the arts, philosophy, religion, geography, ethnicity, and domestic life. Each entry introduces readers to another facet of the postclassical world: historic figures and places, institutions, burial customs, food, money, public life, and amusements. A splendid selection of illustrations enhances the portrait. The intriguing era of late antiquity emerges completely and clearly, viewed in a new light and from new vantage points, in a guide that will be relished by scholars and general readers alike. ; Harvard University Press Reference Library; 1.66 x 10.5 x 8.34 Inches; 780 pages

Light shelfwear else NF; Old Testament Readings; 0.67 x 8.76 x 5.4 Inches; 192 pages; Combining insights from social and literary theory with a firm grasp of traditional historical studies, Brett argues that the Book of Genesis can be read as resistance literature. In Brett's illuminating analysis, stories such as the marriages of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as well as the narratives of Hagar, Dinah and Tamar reveal that the editors of Genesis were directly engaged with contemporary issues--especially the nature of an authentic community--and that the book was designed to undermine the ethnocentrism of the imperial governors of the Persian period.

46 Burkert, Walter; (translated by Margaret E. Pinder & Walter Burkert) THE ORIENTALIZING REVOLUTION Near Eastern Influence on Greek Culture in the Early Archaic Age
Harvard University Press 1997 067464364X / 9780674643642 Softcover Very Good 
Former owner's name on ffep. ; Revealing Antiquity 5; 238 pages; The rich and splendid culture of the ancient Greeks has often been described as emerging like a miracle from a genius of its own, owing practically nothing to its neighbours. Walter Burkert offers an argument against that distorted view, pointing toward a balanced picture of the archaic period "in which, under the influence of the Semitic East, Greek culture began its unique flowering, soon to assume cultural hegemony, in the Mediterranean". Burkert focuses on the "orientalizing" century 750-650 B.C., the period of Assyrian conquest, Phoenician commerce, and Greek exploration of both East and West, when not only eastern skills and images but also the Semitic art of writing was transmitted to Greece. He tracks the migrant craftsmen who brought the Greeks new techniques and designs, the wandering seers and healers teaching magic and medicine, and the important Greek borrowings from Near Eastern poetry and myth. Drawing widey on archaeological, textual and historical evidence, he demonstrates that eastern models significantly affected Greek literature and religion in the Homeric age.
