Sinope, a settlement along the Black Sea, was a Greek colony of Miletus important for its location at the Northeastern margins of the Greek 'empire' and its role as a trading hub between the Mediterranean, Scythia, and Persia. It was most famous as the capital of Mithradates Eupator's Pontic kingdom, which fell to Rome in 70 BC. Robinson offers transcripts, editions, translations and commentaries on inscriptions surviving from the important site at the border between East and West.

Ancient History: Recent Work and New Directions

Edited by Carol G. Thomas
ISBN: 0-941690-78-4
Characteristic of the aims and goals of the Association of Ancient Historians, this volume focuses on the new and developing arenas of study of the Classical world. Included in this volume are informed considerations of recent work done in four major fields of Classics scholarship: Greece (beginning in the late Dark Ages), by Kurt A. Raaflaub, the Hellenistic Age (including Macedon), by Stanley M. Burstein, the Roman Republic, by Allen M. Ward, and the Roman Empire, by Ramsay MacMullen. Designed to give both the specialist and the novice in the field an overview of trends in present-day scholarship focused on the ancient world, each contributor is allowed his own voice and viewpoint.
