Ancients In Their Own Words: Greeks

Greek civilization spread around the Mediterranean from the third millennium BCE, first flourishing in Crete and Mycenae and later in Athens, Corinth, and Macedonia. Brings to life the world of the ancient Greeks through accounts of their conquests, laws, myths, religious beliefs, and memorials. Includes examples of Minoan “Linear A,” Mycenaean “Linear B,” and ancient Greek scripts carved into clay tablets, bronze plaques, temple walls, voting disks, and broken pottery. Features some key written records, such as the Minoan Phaistos Disk, Archilochus's monument, boundary stones from the agora, the Gortyn Code, Athenian ostracons, the Aristotle Herma, and the Parian Marble.
