Cruelty and sentimentality: Greek attitudes to animals, 600-300 BC
Louise Calder

This work examines archaeological and literary evidence, between 600 and 300 BC, to discover how ancient Greeks regarded, interacted with, used, and treated tame and domestic animals, as well as some prominent wild species. Of primary interest are relationships between human and animal well-being.
