Book - 1989
Rate this:
Some 1,000 Greek place-names are listed, defined, and located. Includes rivers, towns, mountains, regions, seas, islands, and other topographical features. Each is briefly described first for purposes of setting; then follows an account of its founding, lineage of the ruling houses, associated heroic events, migrations, festivals, and principal deities. Existing ruins associated with myth are described, while a guide to personae enables any mythological "being" to be traced through the main body of the work to all places with which that figure was identified.
