Thousands of documents surviving on stone and papyrus help us to understand the complex society that took shape after the death of Alexander the Great. This book presents some of the most revealing of these documents in translation, allowing readers to form a direct impression of life in the Hellenistic world. The book contains 175 documents capturing the political, social, economic, and religious dynamism of the Hellenistic kingdoms and cities. It covers the entire Hellenistic world and draws extensively on the papyrus remains of the Ptolemaic kingdom in Egypt, which allow an unequalled depth of insight into daily life at every level of society

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For any reader, this book will provide an illuminating, reliable and accessible resource. Its clarity of style, meticulous attention to detial, and sensitivity to current bibliography provide a model that should be emulated by other scholars contemplating the creation of their own sourcebooks...it is quite simply difficult to find fault with this book." Bryn Mawr Classical Review "This collection is a model of meticulous scholarship and excellent judgement. I read it with great pleasure and great respect." Dr John Ma, Corpus Christi College, University of Oxford
