American School of Classical Studies | 1961 | ISBN: 0876616198 | 36 pages | PDF | 14,7 MB

Although this booklet is based on broken pottery found during the excavation of the Agora, the author ranges far beyond the confines of Athens in her discussion of the purpose and significance of different amphora types.

The booklet illustrates many different forms of amphora, all set into context by the well-written text.

Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter by Thomas Cahill

Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea: Why the Greeks Matter by Thomas Cahill
Anchor | 2004 | ISBN: 0385495544 | 352 pages | EPUB | 13 MB

In Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, his fourth volume to explore “the hinges of history,” Thomas Cahill escorts the reader on another entertaining—and historically unassailable—journey through the landmarks of art and bloodshed that defined Greek culture nearly three millennia ago. In the city-states of Athens and Sparta and throughout the Greek islands, honors could be won in making love and war, and lives were rife with contradictions. By developing the alphabet, the Greeks empowered the reader, demystified experience, and opened the way for civil discussion and experimentation—yet they kept slaves. Granting equal time to the sacred and the profane, Cahill rivets our attention to the legacies of an ancient and enduring worldview.
