About the Author

D. Graham J. Shipley is Professor of Ancient History at the University of Leicester and a leading Greek historian who has published extensively on Classical and Hellenistic Greece. His publications include A History of Samos (1987), major contributions to the British School at Athens Laconia Survey volumes (1996-2002), and the lead editorship of the Cambridge Dictionary of Classical Civilization (Cambridge, 2006). His Pseudo-Skylax's Periplous (2011) offered the first fully revised text since the nineteenth century of an important work of Greek geography, and the first commentary and translation in English. He is best known, however, for his monograph The Greek World after Alexander (2000), which has become the standard one-volume survey of the Hellenistic period in English and was short listed for the Runciman Prize, the Anglo-Hellenic League. He is a Fellow of a number of learned societies, including the Royal Historical Society and the Society of Antiquaries of London, as well as a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
