About this book

Cruelty and Sentimentality: Greek Attitudes to Animals, 600-300 BC examines archaeological and literary evidence, between 600 and 300 BC, to discover how ancient Greeks regarded, interacted with, used, and treated tame and domestic animals, as well as some prominent wild species. Of primary interest are relationships between human and animal well-being. A prominent feature of the presently known surviving Greek literary and artistic evidence is its emphasis upon elite values and activities. The purpose of the study is to supplement the Greek social history of human-animal relationships, by including the more mundane social spheres, and species.
