About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1932, this book contains the text of the Prince Consort Prize Essay for 1930 on the subject of Epirus, the region on the periphery of the ancient Greek world and mostly remembered for their king Pyrrhus of Epirus. Cross examines the presentation of Epirus in historical and literary records from elsewhere in Greece, and traces its development as a region from its early status as a collection of tribes until its conquest by the Romans in 146 BC. Several appendices containing family trees of the Epirote rulers and the text of certain inscriptions pertaining to the region are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in this often overlooked region of the ancient world.
