Rezensionen
"Informative general introduction to Cleopatra, it tends to focus on a wide variety of sources that provide interesting angles from which to examine this infamous queen." ( Scholia Reviews , 2010)

"Ashton s careful consideration of the Egyptian material is what makes her book a valuable addition to our understanding of Cleopatra. ... A welcome addition to the growing number of texts on Cleopatra suitable for classroom use." ( The Classical Outlook , Spring 2009)

"If you want a well researched and illustrated account of Cleopatra within her contemporary Egyptian context, read Ashton." ( The Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists , 2009)

"One of the best features of Ashton s book is its assessment of the evidence, literary as well as archaeological. Ashton s book ... is a valuable contribution to the literature on Cleopatra." ( Bryn Mawr Classical Review )

"A must-read, scholarly book on Cleopatra for students and teachers of ancient Egypt, Cleopatra, and ancient art." ( About.com )
