Abstract

The book represents a synthesis of the archaeological, epigraphic, literary and papyrological evidence for gardens which characterises the ancient Greek garden as a multifunctional and variable feature of urban and, above all, suburban daily life. Other types of agriculturally worked land, such as fields, vineyards, and groves, are dealt with in comparison to the garden, as it is not always clear where the kepos begins or ends.
