"This rich collection is an appropriate honor, reflecting EV's wide range of interest in all aspects of Hellenic studies, with special emphasis on Athens and Attica. The reader will put this volume down much wiser and greatly enriched; it is rather like a good session with the master himself." John McK. Camp II, AJA 87 (1983), pp. 114-115
