Item Description...
A Day in the Life of Ancient Athens sets out to answer some of the questions often posed by students, the general public, and even teachers, about what it was actually like to live in Ancient Athens. Taking the framework of a typical day in the life of the city and its people, this volume looks at the minutiae of everyday living. Much is known about the great achievements of Athens, but information about the ordinary round of life -- about food, furniture, and fashion, about make-up and laundry, children's games and the whole industry based on the favored masculine pastime of the dinner party -- is hard to find. This book draws together information from a wide range ofsources: from court cases to after-dinner stories, tragedy to comedy, painted pottery to gravestones, bringing the ordinary Athenian to life. In this volume, one can learn what was Plato's favorite food, the Ancient Greek cure for a hangover, what to use for baby food and the Greek version of aromatherapy. Linda Hennessy's illustrations, drawn from original source material, help the reader to enter the window of the unfamiliar but fascinating Ancient Athens.
