About the Authors
  • The renowned classical scholar and archaeologist A. B. Cook (1868–1952) published his monumental Zeus: A Study in Ancient Religion in three volumes between 1914 and 1940. A treasure-trove of primary texts, both Greek and Latin, epigraph material and archaeological data, this magnificent work, illustrated with maps, diagrams, photographs, and engravings, including many images of ancient pottery, statues, busts, friezes and ancient coins, remains an indispensable tool for students and scholars of classics, mythology and ancient religion.
