About the book

"This book makes a major contribution to our understanding of the political, social, and economic history of Hellenistic Rhodes in particular and the Eastern Mediterranean in general. It is an excellent addition to the Aarhus series of Studies in Hellenistic Civilization and maintains that series's reputation for very high quality at a very modest price."
Philip de Souza, The Classical Review
