Abstract Table of contents Authors / Editors
The kingdom of Bithynia arose during the age of Alexander and his successors, and, thanks to its ambitious and charismatic kings, became the dominant power in the Propontic area within a few decades. This book explores its emergence through an in-depth analysis of the surviving sources in order to reassess its role in the Hellenistic political landscape.
