Pressestimmen

'... one of the most influential books in recent years.' Sehepunkte 'In this important book, Manning offers a fundamental reassessment of the economic basis of the Ptolemaic state, and of the ways in which the state exercised economic power at the local level.' The Journal of Egyptian Archaeology '[Manning] modestly describes this book as 'a prolegomenon to the study of the Ptolemaic economy'. It is also an essential contribution to the study of the Ptolemaic state and politics.' Ancient West & East
