Drawing on the most recent scholarship, this engaging, accessible volume brings ancient Greek society - from food and drink to literacy, the plight of the elderly, the treatment of slaves, and much more - vividly to life; it also explores the mentalities and morals of ordinary ancient Greek citizens at all societal levels. More than forty illustrations are included, as are maps, a chronology, a glossary of Greek terms, and suggestions for further reading.
