Birds in the Ancient World from A to Z gathers together the ancient
information available, listing all the names that ancient Greeks
gave their birds and all their descriptions and analyses. W.
Geoffrey Arnott identifies as many of them as possible in the light
of modern ornithological studies.
The ancient Greek bird names are transliterated into English
script, and all that the ancients said about birds is presented in
English. This book is accordingly the first complete discussion of
ancient bird names that will be accessible to readers without
The only large-scale examination of ancient birds for seventy
years, the book has an exhaustive bibliography (partly classical
scholarship and partly ornithological) to encourage further study,
and provides students and ornithologists with the definitive study
of ancient birds.
