Negotiating Identity In The Ancient Mediterranean

Author By : Denise Demetriou

Description Ebook: Building on the growing study of the Mediterranean as a whole, this study explores the ways in which identities were constructed and negotiated across the Mediterranean, focusing not only on ethnic identity, but also on civic, linguistic and religious identities and on social status. Demetriou analyses literary, epigraphic and archaeological sources from five geographically diverse Greek emporia (Emporion, Gravisca, Naukratis, Pistiros and Peiraieus), arguing that the common cultural world of the ancient Mediterranean facilitated the mediation of identity as something fluid and dynamic, considerably more complex than narrow ethnic definitions might allow.

Genre : History

Format : All Format

Description Ebook: This is the first detailed and comprehensive study of the shipshed complexes which housed the great navies of the Greco-Roman world, including Athens and Carthage. These complexes represented some of the largest and most expensive building projects of antiquity, and the volume provides a comprehensive survey of the archaeological and literary evidence. It explains how the buildings were carefully designed to keep warships dry and out of reach of shipworm, whilst enabling them to be launched quickly, easily and safely when required. It also serves as a handbook for archaeologists who may excavate such buildings, which are often difficult to identify and interpret. The analytical chapters are complemented by a full and detailed catalogue of known sheds, with plans for all the major sites specially drawn for easy comparison. The book thus provides an indispensable guide for all those interested in these buildings and in the maritime infrastructure of the ancient world.

Greek Prostitutes In The Ancient Mediterranean 800 Bce 200 Ce

Format : All Format

Description Ebook: Greek Prostitutes in the Ancient Mediterranean, 800 BCE–200 CE challenges the often-romanticized view of the prostitute as an urbane and liberated courtesan by examining the social and economic realities of the sex industry in Greco-Roman culture. Departing from the conventional focus on elite society, these essays consider the Greek prostitute as displaced foreigner, slave, and member of an urban underclass. The contributors draw on a wide range of material and textual evidence to discuss portrayals of prostitutes on painted vases and in the literary tradition, their roles at symposia (Greek drinking parties), and their place in the everyday life of the polis. Reassessing many assumptions about the people who provided and purchased sexual services, this volume yields a new look at gender, sexuality, urbanism, and economy in the ancient Mediterranean world.
