About this product
- DescriptionIn Greek Gods in the East, Ladislav Stanco explores the exportation of religious imagery and themes from the Hellenistic Mediterranean to Gandhara, in present-day Pakistan and Afghanistan, and Bactria, w Uzbekistan. As Stanco shows clearly and effectively, while Eastern cultures borrowed heavily from the icography of Greek mythology, they also adapted and amended images and stories to reflect their own tastes and ideas over the centuries. This volume includes nearly four hundred images and presents an important comparative study for art historians and scholars of ancient history.
- Author BiographyLadislav Stanco is a member of the Institute for Classical Archaeology, Charles University, Prague.
