Dogs in the Athenian Agora


In this book, readers are shown how dogs fit into ancient Greek society with material from the last 90 years of excavations at the Athenian Agora by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

Topics range from how ancient Greeks hunted with dogs and what they considered a proper dog's name to be, through to the excavation of tender burials in the Agora and the sacrifice of dogs to the gods of the underworld. Dozens of illustrations of pottery, sculpture, and excavated remains enliven the text. It weaves fascinating insights into an engaging narrative, connecting various lines of evidence and linking past and present timeframes.
