This entertaining and useful book provides a comprehensive survey of films about the ancient world, from The Last Days of Pompeii to Gladiator. Jon Solomon catalogues, describes, and evaluates films set in ancient Greece and Rome, films about Greek and Roman history and mythology, films of the Old and New Testaments, films set in ancient Egypt, Babylon, and Persia, films of ancient tragedies, comic films set in the ancient world, and more. The book has been updated to include feature films and made-for-television movies produced in the past two decades. More than two hundred photographs illustrate both the films themselves and the ancient sources from which their imagery derives. Listed in The Signet Book of Movie Lists by Jeff Rovin as one of the best books about film ever written

'for the first time Jon Solomon has taken the ancient world and in this excellent book has examined its influence upon blockbuster movies...There is no academic distancing in this highly readable text. Solomon writes in a way which combines research and humour and his field of reference is huge, ranging from filmic art...to religion and its perception, battle strategy and special effects.' - Richard Edmonds, The Birmingham Post
Jon Solomon is professor of classics at the University of Arizona.
