This collection of papers originally published in the journal Past and Present includes some of the most innovative history written about Greece and Rome in the last twenty years, and offers a convenient and enthralling guide to the most exciting current issues and topics in Greek and Roman history. The contributors to the volume are among the most influential ancient historians who have been active in the last quarter century. An introduction by the editor sets the scene for papers on Greek warfare, the regulation and representation of women and the nature and study of homosexual relationships at Athens, the relationship between Rome and its empire, whether Rome was democratic, the ideology of Augustan Rome, games and gaming at Rome, the lives of slaves, the ancient interpretation of dreams, the nature of religious pilgrimage, early Christian martyr stories, and bandits in the Roman empire.
