The New York Review of Books - - Front Page -

An Ir­re­place­able Trea­sure Paul Veyne Trans­lated by Teresa Laven­der Fa­gan “Veyne is one of the fore­most liv­ing his­to­ri­ans of the an­cient world, and here, with­out jar­gon or pedantry, he de­scribes the Palmyra’s art, its re­li­gion, its ar­chi­tec­ture, and its peo­ple. . . . This is a book of pas­sion and moral in­tegrity that ought to be read by any­one with the slight­est in­ter­est in the an­cient world.” —Wall Street Jour­nal Cloth $22.50
