About this Site
This is a collection of images, thoughts, and resources about Ancient Greece.

All images (with rare exceptions) are produced by the author, and essays reflect his knowledge and personal opinion as developed through research, college level coursework, historical sources, and other authoritative resources.
All content is original and very effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the text of this site. The subject matters discussed herein fall within the author's expertise and have been extensively researched. Direct quotes and sources are included in the text whenever necessary, and a bibliography is maintained.

Chronology and Historical Events
Versions of historical events can vary considerably even in original sources, and their interpretation can span a wide gamut of opinion in the historical discourse. The most commonly accepted versions of events and interpretations are adopted here. Where scholarly opinion diverges considerably and where consultation of original sources is not available or possible, the most authoritative view (in the view of this author) is adopted.
While chronology of events and periods often varies, the most commonly accepted timelines have been adopted. In cases where the sources vary slightly, the chronology of the most authoritative (in the view of this author) publication has been adopted. In rare occasions where the time given by sources varies considerably, original sources are consulted and if no definitive dates are found notations are made to inform the viewer of the diverse views.
"BCE" (Before the Common Era) and "CE" (Common Era) has been adopted to describe chronology throughout the site instead of the popular BC and AD symbols.
