This book aims to set before students beginning the study of Ancient History a sufficient amount of source material to illustrate the important facts mentioned in every good textbook. Many tales have been included which condensed histories may well slight but which afford refreshing illustrations of the ancient life of the ancient viewpoint. It unfolds a panorama of ancient life - etched, drawn, painted, caricatured, by contemporaries. No great phase of that life is neglected. At the time of original publication in 1912, William Stearns Davis was Professor of Ancient History, University of Minnesota.
