Gold title on blue boards which are clean and unmarked with no wear. Internally there is some light foxing to top and fore edges else very clean, tight and unmarked. A Very Good+ copy. Dustjacket is also VG+ and is not price clipped. Map endpapers. An historical novel set in 338 B.C. when Athens and her allies were defeated by the new might of Macedon and saved from destruction only by Philip's regard for her civilisation. The Athenians, hardly aware of their reprieve, continue to buy, whore, sel, market, feast, philosophise and plot. Phryne, the hetaira, queen of the courtesans, is the centre of a circle which includes Hyperides the lawyer and her most loyal lover, Praxiteles the sculptor, Demosthenes the orator and a group of bankers, politicians and rich merchants. Her luxurious household of twenty men and six slave girls, four apprentices and a blind lyre player, is the envy of the Greek world.
