About this book

Language: French

This book is a contribution to the history of equestrian culture of the Greek world. By adopting the angle of the war horse, it aims to study the perks of military horseback riding and the actions of cavalry on the battlefield. Using source such as the Athenian Xenophon (c. 430-c. 355 BC), but also other available sources (literary, epigraphic and iconographic), it is possible to focus on the specifics of horse breeding, through to the types of frames produced and their integration in the cavalry.

Summary in French:
Ce livre est une contribution à l’histoire de la culture équestre du monde grec. En adoptant l’angle du cheval de guerre, il vise à étudier les à-côtés de l’équitation militaire et des actions des cavaliers sur les champs de bataille. Grâce à l’Athénien Xénophon (v. 430-v. 355) mais aussi à d’autres sources disponibles (littéraires, épigraphiques et iconographiques), il est possible de s’intéresser aux spécificités de l’élevage équin, depuis les types de montures produites jusqu’à leur intégration dans les cavaleries.
