"In this comprehensive history of Homer's references to ships and seafaring, author Samuel Mark reveals patterns in the way that the Greeks build ships and approached the sea between 850 and 750 B.C. To discuss and clarify the terms used by Homer, Mark draws on scholarly literature as well as examples of recent excavations of ancient shipwrecks." "As befits a study whose subjects are partly historical, partly archaeological, and partly myth and legend, Mark's conclusions are tentative. Yet, this comprehensive and meticulous study of Homer's references to ships and seafaring is sure to become a standard study on the subject."--Jacket.
