Who were the ones in power in the ancient world? When did the Ptolemies rule? Which dynasties ruled the Iranian empire and which Asia Minor and its neighbours? Who controlled the fates of the cities and provinces of Greece and Rome? "Chronologies of the Ancient World" offers a comprehensive collection of geographically and chronologically ordered lists of the rulers and public officers from 3000 BC to around 800 AD, from the Pharaos of Egypt to the Christian bishops. This supplement to Brill's "New Pauly" enriches the information from the encyclopedia with its exhaustive lists of names, dates and facts about the people who shaped the Ancient World. The clear arrangement allows easy orientation and quick access to names, dates of rule and dynastic relationships. Each list is preceded by a historical introduction and contains references to the articles in Brill's "New Pauly". This reference work can be used on its own or together with the encyclopedia.
