Yhe book is a comprehensive research in the origins and transmission of the ancient greek (and incidentally also latin) (hi)stories about the Thracian people of the Getae. Starting with Sophocles and with Herodotus’ Histories, the Getae were quite vaguely described, but invariably credited with rituals meant to bestow them immortality. How these peculiarities were born, transmitted from an wncient writer to another, and understood in Antiquity is the theme of the volume.
