Useful reference to the Classical World 5 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Oxford provides with us concise biographies of almost 500 real (as opposed to mythical) people from the Classical Period. The biographies were written by 190 experts and range from a paragraph to several pages, covering rulers, politicians, artists, authors, philosophers and scientists. Seperate chronologies are provided for the Greece and the East and Rome and the West. Five maps are also included. An excellent reference for the student and general public.

"A Great Study Companion" 5 Feb 2002
By Johannes Platonicus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Oxford's "Who's Who in the Classical World" is a quick and concise, authoritative and direct, way to understand the principle people of the age. From Lucius Accius to Zosimus the historian, this reference work covers the general milieu of Greco-Roman civilization. The detailed maps and timelines are an excellent study-aid, and also make up for the lack of illustrations throughout its duration. This is an easily accessible and convenient reference tool, and for this reason it stands out above its counter-part, "The Oxford Companion to Classical Civilization," which is more bulky, expensive, and less appealing to anyone simply ready to deal with real people and real events. However, this edition does to a certain extent deal with the many Mythological gods and heroes, with its in-depth analysis of Greek and Roman authors and their literature; for this, everyone will be satisfied. Despite the absence of a few influential people, the five hundred people excellently portrayed here will suffice. This reference work is thoroughly recommended.
