Reviews

[Drakon] will become the essential resource for any further study of the serpents of the Greek and Roman worlds.
*Laura Gawlinski, Bryn Mawr Classical Review*

meticulously researched ... Recommended.
*S.E. Goins, CHOICE*

Professor Daniel Ogden's Drakon is a work of awesome scope and thoroughness, and is also remarkably lively and entertaining to read. ... All these aspects, and many others, are discussed in this fascinating book, a major contribution to the history of Classical religion.
*Jacqueline Simpson, Journal of the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy*
