|Summary:||"In this lively and accessible book, Jenifer Neils offers an engaging overview of the roles of women in the ancient societies of Greece, Rome, Egypt, and the Near East. Sifting through a range of evidence from written and material culture, and focusing in particular on visual imagery, she traces the parameters of women's real lives, as distinct from the stereotypical ways in which they were often portrayed."--P.  of cover.|
