David M. Lewis (1928-1994) was one of the foremost historians of the ancient world, and was uniquely expert in both Greek and Near Eastern history. His name appears on the spine of numerous important books, but much of his most original and influential work was published in article form. The papers selected for this volume illustrate the range and quality of his work on Greek and Near Eastern history and his particular expertise in dealing with inscriptions, ostraka, and coins. Professor Lewis began considering the choice of papers for inclusion before his death and they have been prepared for publication by Professor P. J. Rhodes. A complete bibliography of the author's published works concludes the volume.

Industry Reviews

'These Selected Papers in Greek and Near Eastern History ... cannot be welcomed too warmly ... The volume brings out excellently the enormous range of Professor Lewis's interests and sympathies, as well as the supremely high quality and attention to detail for which he was famous.' Rosalind Thomas, The Times Literary Supplement 'Scholars ad students will find this book enormously useful ... This book is a worthy final tribute to an outstanding scholar and generous helper of many.' Journal of Hellenic Studies
