Bill Caraher on Lolos’ “Land of Sikyon”

In mid-March, Bill posted the working draft of a review of Yannis Lolos’ Land of Sikyon, a Hesperia Supplement volume published in 2011 (see sample PDF here). 

The “official” review went live today on the BMCR list.

Here’s the opening paragraph…read the full review here.

“Land of Sikyon is a handsomely produced and impeccably edited volume that includes a massive amount of new information on Sikyon produced over the course of a diachronic, extensive archaeological survey initiated by Yannis Lolos as part of his dissertation research and expanded in subsequent field seasons. Moreover, Lolos’s book provides valuable and extensive synthesis of past work in the region and a careful study of relevant ancient texts. This work is a groundbreaking study of this city and its countryside.”
