This authoritative atlas surveys more than 2,000 years of classical history, from ancient Egypt and the growth of the Greek city-states, to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Edited by the eminent classical historian Michael Grant and based on the most current research, the Atlas offers 92 maps covering an extraordinary range of topics, including the spread of Judaism and Christianity, the coinage of the Roman Empire, Pompeii, and the origins of the Greek and Latin writers. The great historical milestones are here, from the Battle of Salamis in 480 BC, to the conquests of Alexander the Great and the Second Punic War (218-201 BC), to the barbarian invasions of the fifth century AD. Included as well are maps showing the world according to Herodotus and Ptolemy, and the rivers, mountains, and rainfall of the Mediterranean area. Other maps provide detailed coverage of religious, political, cultural, economic, and agricultural aspects of the ancient world. Throughout the atlas, annotations impart important historical background and insight, and a detailed index provides both modern and ancient place names.
This fully revised Fifth Edition of the Atlas of Classical History offers new maps, including a map of the ancient world in its entirety, maps charting the changing frontiers of the Roman Empire under Julius Caesar and Augustus, and a map detailing the persecution of the Christians.
