Named a Library Journal Best Reference Book of 1991
This Fascinating book is the first and only comprehensive biographical dictionary devoted to mythological women.
It offers unprecedented access to information on women largely neglected in reference works on Greek and Roman myth, as well as a fresh look at the better known figures.
The 2600 lively, engagingly written entries are arranged alphabetically, and are completely cross-referenced for easy access.
Each entry places its subject both in the overall context of classical myth, and in the frame of reference of her better known counterparts.
