Carolyn Higbie uses an inscription of the first century BC from the Greek island of Rhodes to study what the ancient Greeks believed about their past. By drawing on anthropological approaches as well as archaeological and literary evidence, this book explores what was important to the Greeks about their past, how they reconstructed it, and how they made use of it in their present.
