"By the end of the Archaic period, Greek sanctuaries were bursting with dedications, including many that bore epigrams. This study views dedications comprehensively as sites of ritual efficacy, and in particular it recovers epigrams' reflections of and contributions to that efficacy and restores them to an important place in the panorama of Greek religious practice. In order to reconstruct the Archaic experience of reading and viewing, the book draws on studies of traditional poetic language as resonant with immanent meaning, early Greek poetry as socially and religiously effective performance, and viewing art as an active response of aesthetic appreciation. It argues that reading epigrams while viewing dedications generated effects of religious ritual and poetic performance, and that visual and verbal representation of the dedicator's act of offering associated that rite with similar effects, thereby framing the experiences of readers and viewers as reperformances of the earlier occasion"--

This welcome volume examines the use and meaning of equestrian statues in Archaic Greece, relying not only on a full catalog of the sculptures but also on the rich comparative material in the literary and archaeological remains. Previous works have either crowded this important material into a large study of all equestrian statues everywhere or else have examined only those few that belong to the Athenian Acropolis. It has therefore been difficult to characterize the style and distribution of this sculpture, let alone examine them within their cultural milieu. Mary Ann Eaverly carries out precisely these important tasks. The first half of the volume identifies the unique characteristics of equestrian statues as a type apart from other Archaic sculpture. The author places the sculptures within their historical and cultural context and considers critical factors such as cultic activity, aristocratic symbolism, and the influence of Peisistratos. The second half of the volume is a catalog that discusses all the extant pieces individually. Archaic Greek Equestrian Sculpture will be of interest to students and scholars of Greek sculpture, the Greek artistic heritage, and the complex history of Archaic Greece.

Historians since Herodotus and Thucydides have claimed that the year 483 BCE marked a turning point in the history of Athens. For it was then that Themistocles mobilized the revenues from the city's highly productive silver mines to build an enormous war fleet. This income stream is thought to have become the basis of Athenian imperial power, the driving force behind its democracy and the centre of its system of public finance. But in his groundbreaking new book, Hans van Wees argues otherwise. He shows that Themistocles did not transform Athens, but merely expanded a navy-centered system of public finance that had already existed at least a generation before the general's own time, and had important precursors at least a century earlier. The author reconstructs the scattered evidence for all aspects of public finance, in archaic Greece at large and early Athens in particular, to reveal that a complex machinery of public funding and spending was in place as early as the reforms of Solon in 594 BCE. Public finance was in fact a key factor in the rise of the early Athenian state - long before Themistocles, the empire and democracy.
