Sound and the Ancient Senses (The Senses in Antiquity, vol. 6), London-New York: Routledge, 2019.An essential read for all those interested in the ‘soundscape’ of Antiquity – from rites to the human body, the physiology of hearing, myth, music on the stage, ancient emotions and contemporary attempts in reconstructing ancient sounds –, the volume offers a broad perspective on sounds and hearing in Antiquity by means of its fourteen essays, distributed into three parts (“Ancient soundscapes”, “Theories of sound”, “Philology and sound”).
