Green cloth, gilt letters on spine, cream paper dust jacket, 294 pp., 4 BW plates. "After Delphi, Dodona was the most important of the oracles in ancient Greece. It laid claim to even greater antiquity, and was used during many periods as an alternative source of divine guidance. At this distant site in northwest Greece, a priesthood with peculiar ritual observances acted as interpreters of an oak sacred to Zeus which spoke his prophecies. The somewhat limited literary references to Dodona's history have been supplemented in recent years by valuable archaeological findings, illustrating particularing its use by private inquirers. In this book, the first time the subject has been treated at length, Mr. Parke examines in detail the chief problems concerning Dodona's activity and assesses all the available evidence -- literary, archaeological, and historical -- while clearly distinguishing between what is certain, what is probable, and what is merely speculative."
