9780198150473: The Odrysian Kingdom of Thrace: Orpheus Unmasked (Oxford Monographs on Classical Archaeology)

The popularity of Orpheus the Thracian throughout the Greek world attests to the prominence of the Odrysians among their Greek and Macedonian neighbors in the fifth century BC. Archibald analyzes the cultural amalgam the Odrysian governing elite formed from native, Persian, and Greek elements, and provides new data on the external relations of Athens, Thasos, and Macedon in the classical and early Hellenistic periods.

About the Author:

Zofia Halina Archibald is at University of Liverpool.

Review:

`The gazetteer of archaeological sites is extremely useful for those who are unfamiliar with the region. One aspect of the book deserves a particular mention: it is full of maps and plans, and these provide almost as much important information as the text itself. Without doubt, the book is a
great achievement for both the author and for Thracian studies as a whole. This is a book with nearly everything.'
Gocha R. Tsetskhladze, North Pontic Archaeology: Recent Discoveries and Studies

`Most welcome is an essay on the problems of chronology and methodology, which have been experienced by all scholars studying the Balkan Early Iron Age'
Gocha R. Tsetskhladze, North Pontic Archaeology: Recent Discoveries and Studies

`This book has been long in preparation and the wait was worthwhile. Here is a book which covers virtually all aspects of the history and material culture of the Odrysian Kingdom.'
Gocha R. Tsetskhladze, North Pontic Archaeology: Recent Discoveries and Studies

`Important book ... a fascinating tale of interaction and mutual acculturation between Greek and Thracian, which would have been impossible to glean from the literary evidence alone. Archibald's exemplary book is accessible to both the general reader and specialist.'
TLS
