BeschreibungThis annotated bibliography of 603 references, taken from monographs, dissertations, festschrifts, periodicals, encyclopedias and handbooks, is the most comprehensive research tool for the subject of ancient Greek costume. This subject is of increasing interest to scholars in many fields, including archaeology and anthropology, art and art history, classics, drama, history, ancient literature, even modern literature. Myths tell of disguises in costume, recognition from weavings, and poisoned garments. Textile production was an important part of the ancient Greek economy. Garments and accessories were dedicated to gods in sanctuaries and provided for the afterlife in burials. The references in this bibliography range from the encyclopedia entry to the monograph, and show a variety of themes: women's dress, men's dress, foreign dress, accessories, jewelry, headdresses, theater dress, textile production and literary evidence.
