Lykophron'S Alexandra, Rome, And The Hellenistic World

Sobre o livro
The Alexandra attributed to Lykophron is a notoriously difficult poem but one that sheds crucial light on Greek religion, foundation myths, and myths of colonial identity. This book asserts its importance as a strongly political and historical document, and argues that the probable decade of its composition was a turning-point in Roman history.
