Original and comprehensive, Magic in the Ancient Greek World takes the reader inside both the social imagination and the ritual reality that made magic possible in ancient Greece. * Explores the widespread use of spells, drugs, curse tablets, and figurines, and the practitioners of magic in the ancient world * Uncovers how magic worked. Was it down to mere superstition? Did the subject need to believe in order for it to have an effect? * Focuses on detailed case studies of individual types of magic * Examines the central role of magic in Greek life
