About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1946, this book uses the fictional autobiography of a character named 'Nicanor' to shed light on the nature of Athenian existence during the Peloponnesian War. The text has a broad focus, drawing attention to the everyday aspects of life in Athens, as well as major events and conflicts. As noted in the preface, 'Nicanor's life story is an attempt to picture life in the great days of a great war.' This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in perspectives on Ancient Greek history and culture.
