«Mythological Atlas of Greece»
An original approach to Greek mythology
through geography and ancient literary sources
This Mythological Atlas of Greece gathers in a single text the exhaustive first-hand mythological information contained in the literary works of antiquity in order to serve it extracted, compiled and organized on a complete map of the current Greece. In this way, the old and the modern context are superimposed graphically with the intention of uniting the common memory and the evocative burden of the past to the immediacy of the present places and the remains that still exist between us.
An unusual catalog of all the sites of ancient Greece with reference to their state of preservation today, a complete inventory of ancient literary sources that give evidence of each place and each myth, the compilation under a single account of the multiple information on each mythological character scattered in the works of the different classical authors, a careful and suggestive photographic and literary documentation and a profuse and updated map of Greece come together in this work without detracting from its spirit of what it is intended to be: a book for exploration.
Electronic version facsimile (with OCR character recognition) of the already classic "Mythological Atlas of Greece", best-selling work of its kind, awarded by the Academy of Athens, recommended in its programs by more than fifty universities and exhausted in all its editions on paper.
