Lords of Asia Minor: An Introduction to the Lydians.


Lords of Asia Minor: An Introduction to the Lydians

Annick Payne and Jorit Wintjes



144 pages


Philippika Series: Contributions to the Study of Ancient World Cultures; 93


Much historical and archaeological work has focused on Lydia during later eras, such as the Achaemenid period, say Payne and Wintjes, but not much about Empire Period Lydia, especially from a historical-philological perspective. They fill that gap as well as the few, late, and often biased sources permit, in order to complement current Lydian research. They cover a historical overview, Sardis and the archaeology of Lydia, the Lydian language, Lydian inscriptions, the Lydian civilization, and from Croesus to Scrooge McDuck.
