The American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Princeton, 1997. XXIII,505,66,12p. Cloth. Gilt titled. Loose plan in rear cover. Upper part last pages (with plates) a bit bubbled by moist, causing no harm to plates. 'This is the third part in the series of publications for the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore (D&K) on the slopes of Acrocorinth. (.) It establishes context for all preceding and forthcoming Corinth Publications for D&K. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the sanctuary stratigraphy and architectural development. It also marks a major contribution to the general study of Greek sanctuaries because it presents clear-cut evidence of ritual dining practices on a scale heretofore unprecedented (.). The text is well illustrated, providing much needed phase plans, volumetric reconstructions, and crisp, legible photographs. (.) The volume serves up a very large body of data which can be used by scholars in various subdisciplines - architectural history, art history (sculpture and mosaics), religious studies, etc. (.) Its thoroughness will do much to stimulate discussion on the topics of Ancient Greek dining rituals, the development of Greek sanctuaries, and the organization of ritual space.' (BLANCHE MENADIER in The Classical Review (New Series), 2001, 195-96). Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 34060

Über diesen Titel


A careful and detailed presentation of the architectural remains of the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore on the slopes of Acrocorinth, beginning with the earliest traces of occupation in the Mycenaean period and ending with the Late Roman cemetery. The first chapter presents the ancient testimonia for the location of the sanctuary and details its discovery by the excavators. In the chapters on the architecture, arranged chronologically, the authors describe in detail the buildings found on each of the three terraces of the sanctuary, including the dining rooms, cooking and bathing facilities, and religious structures. A separate chapter discusses the elements of the Acrocorinth dining rooms and their place in the architecture of sacred dining. Extensively illustrated with section drawings and plans.

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
