The myths and legends of ancient Greece and Rome permeate Western civilization to this day. This easy-to-use guide presents the myths and legends in A-Z format, complete with a "topic finder" that enables the reader to locate specific entries quickly and efficiently. Cross-references appear with each entry, and an extensive bibliography is provided.

This volume includes maps of cultural regions and migrations, genealogies of major characters, photographs, and line drawings. An interesting feature is the inclusion of astronomical data, linking the myths and legends to the celestial objects named after them. Diverse characters and events from related traditions - Greco-Egyptian, Romano-Celtic, and more - round out the volume.
