Edited by Vanessa (Radboud University Nijmegen) Cazzato

Description

As a social institution the Greek symposion exerted a powerful influence on archaic, classical, and later Greek culture, from perceptions of politics and philosophy, to attitudes towards sexuality, death, and religion.

This volume collects together papers exploring the symposion by Oswyn Murray, a scholar whose work ignited and defined the field.
