Arranged in dictionary format, this book not only includes an exhaustive collection of entries covering every conceivable female from classical mythology (even the bitches among Actaeon's hounds are listed by name), there is also a cross-reference section titled "The Men in Their Lives" which contains those males from mythology who had anything at all to do with any of the females covered in this book. Each entry on each mythological female not only provides a detailed description of her, but also contains citations of ancient source material. An outstanding reference source for those interested in legendary females of the classical world.
