Reviews

'Fascinating ... these ancient phrasebooks have some wonderful peculiarities.' Times Higher Education
'... this is a very useful book, and the author deserves special thanks. Much interesting information on the sources and recent research is concisely presented in a field often obscure even to experts. Moreover, the attractiveness of the presentation and analysis of the texts will hopefully encourage students to undertake further research in the field.' Peter Kuhlmann, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
