Lindian Chronicle and the Greek Creation of Their Past by Carolyn Higbie
Book DescriptionCarolyn Higbie uses an inscription of the first century BC from Lindos to study the ancient Greeks and their past. The inscription contains two inventories. The first catalogues some forty objects given to Athena Lindia by figures from the mythological past (including Heracles, Helen, and Menelaus) and the historical past (including Alexander the Great and Hellenistic figures). The second catalogues three epiphanies of Athena Lindia to the townspeople when they were in need of her assistance. By drawing on anthropological approaches as well as archaeological and literary evidence, this book explores what was important to the Greeks about their past, how they reconstructed it, and how they made use of it in their present.

Collectors, Scholars, and Forgers in the Ancient World, Hardback (February 2017)
This volume focuses on how ancient Greek and Roman fascination with works of art, texts, and antiquarian objects gave rise to the production of copies and forgeries. Drawing on a range of examples and up-to-date scholarship on forgery it offers insight into what the ancients found valuable and how they understood their past and the evidence for it.
Measure and Music, Hardback (November 1990)» View all books by Carolyn Higbie
The foundation of this book is a line-by-line analysis of the "Iliad" with regard not only to enjambement but also to verse-internal breaks. The study presents analyses on the entire poem rather than a selection of verses.
