Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
The 21 articles collected in this commemorative volume centre on animals in relation to men and gods. Many articles deal with iconographical issues, but epigraphy, ceramics and animal bones are subject of research as well. Although topics range from Eastto West and from pre-historic to modern times, the focus is on Near Eastern Archaeology (16 articles), in particular with respect to the Hellenistic, Parthian and Sasanian periods. In this volume material from Nimrud, Nineveh, Ulug depe, Selinus, Termez, Veh Ardashir and Hatra is published for the first time.
