Item description for A Seleukid Prosopography and Gazetter: By John D. Grainger (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava. Supplementum, 172) by John D. Grainger...

The Seleukid kingdom was one of the greatest states of the ancient world, stretching from Greece to India; it is also one of the least known. This reference work lists all the people whose names are known who lived in that kingdom, classifying them into rulers, officials and subjects, and in each case noting their activity. In addition all the foreigners whose lives affected the Seleukid state are listed. The Gazetteer lists the places which were included in the kingdom, classified as regions, including provinces and peoples, or settlements, whether cities or villages, with a description of their place in its history. In addition the institutions of the kingdom, the social and political glue which made it work, are noted and briefly described.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Seleukid Prosopography and Gazetter: By John D. Grainger (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava. Supplementum, 172)?

Useful Reference Tool  Jul 30, 2000
This book is useful for anyone who wants to do research on Seleucid history. It is organized into different sections, making it easy to search for a specific king, city, or individual from this period. The entries all contain detailed references, making it a simple matter for the reader to go back to the original texts in order to learn more about the subjects mentioned in this book. The section on the Seleucid royal family is particularly interesting and useful. It is often difficult to keep track of the various members of the royal family, given their tendency to fight each other and marry multiple times. This gazetteer makes it much easier to understand the relation of all these different people to each other. Where relevant, the discussion of the member of the royal family includes a brief description of their coin types, which is helpful for anyone who has a numismatic interest in the Seleucids. I would recommend this book as valuable reference tool. Such a book has certainly been needed and ably fills a gap in the previous literature.
