About the Author

Daniel Ogden is Professor of Ancient History in the University of Exeter. His most recent publication is Aristomenes of Messene: Legends of Sparta's Nemesis (Classical Press of Wales 2004) and he has published widely on magic and witchcraft in the ancient world.


"Ogden is an excellent storyteller ... With perfect ease he pulls off the trick of producing a book that is at once a primer for anybody who knows little or nothing about the subject, introducing famous texts and summarising their contents, and also a contribution to a learned debate." - Times Higher Education Supplement
"A wide-ranging display of the scholarship proper to a professor of ancient history...a compendium of ancient spine-chillers" Reviewed by Tom Holland in Daily Telegraph, 2008
