Book on Hellenistic Sport

A recent review of the 2016 Athletics in the Hellenistic World, in BMCR: http://www.bmcreview.org/2018/03/20180333.html.

The reviewer’s synopsis is worth quoting: “this volume represents a very welcome addition, not only to sport history, but also to the social history of the ancient world. It provides much material for future research on a vital, though hitherto neglected aspect of athletics in the ancient world.”
