Carthage Et Les Grecs, C. 580-480 Av. J. -C.: Textes Et Histoire

Front Cover
BRILL, 1998 - History - 427 pages
The relations between Carthago and Greece are the subject of this new book by Veronique Krings, author of the Brill handbook "La Civilisation Phenicienne et Punique" (Handbook of Oriental Studies I, 20 (1995)). It covers the period from the expedition of Pentathlos of Cnidos to Sicily until the battle of Himera (580-480 B.C.). In many (Greek) sources material can be found on the subject, e.g.: Herodotus, Diodorus of Sicily, Pausanias, Justinus and Orosius. All these sources are carefully examined, giving due attention to their specific contexts. The texts are consequently confronted with the archaeological evidence available and modern opinions are discussed from an historiographical point of view This volume gives not only new insights into the nature of the relations between Carthago and Greece, but also throws a new light on the Carthaginian presence in the western Mediterranean.
