SCHOLIA REVIEWS

Scholia aims to provide critical reviews of publications in the field of
ancient Greek and Roman art, archaeology, history, literature and
philosophy as soon as possible after they appear. The editor
s also believe that reviews should be as detailed, informative and
comprehensive as possible. In order to make it possible for the journal
to provide reviews of this kind, given the constraints under
which it is produced, reviews will be published over the international
electronic network to registered subscribers. Subscription to the
electronic reviews is free and without restriction. Once publ
ished, the reviews will be archived at the University of Natal, Durban
and the University of Pennsylvania, USA, from which they can be
retrieved by Gopher or FTP. Abstracts of reviews and instruction
s on how to retrieve reviews electronically will be published in the
journal itself along with a list of books received. The editor reserves
the right to publish the full text of a review in the jour
nal itself. Contributors of reviews are therefore requested to submit
an abstract (300-500 words) together with the full text of their review.
Contributions should preferably be sent by e-mail or on
disk followed by one clearly printed copy by air mail.

HOW TO SUBSCRIBE TO SCHOLIA REVIEWS

In order to receive electronic reviews from Scholia simply send a
