    Hodder & Stoughton 2015; US$ 6.99

    Modern Western European culture would have been impossible without the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome.

  • På randen af det ukendteby Tønnes Bekker Nielsen; Arne Søby; Jan Willem Drivjes

    Aarhus University Press 2003; US$ 14.10

    For oldtidens middelhavskulturer var Sortehavet tærsklen til en spændende, men også skræmmende verden med andre folk, sprog og skikke.

Exploring how erotic love is represented in ancient amatory literature, Konstan points... more...
