Review of book, whose purpose is to provide information on a topic neglected in traditional historical studies (special emphasis is given to Blundell's views on women in Sparta and Gortyn). It is argued that the author creates an informative overview by drawing from a wide range of sources, although since the evidence is fragmentary, she must sometimes reach speculative conclusions. 6 pages, 17 footnotes, 1 bibliographic source.
