Although I have devoted my entire life to the study of ancient Greece and its institutions, and although I have read many historical novels whose plot unfolded in Greek antiquity, this book really moved me. Couldn't stop turning its pages; it was as if a time machine had taken me back 2,500 years ago, through the streets of 5th century BC Athens. I could see the monuments and statues that adorned the city, could hear the hubbub of the crowd heading to the Pnix to take part in the ultimate function. of Democracy, I could smell the food slowly cooking in the small houses. Because Cintia Marques is not simply telling a story, her vision of the time and people is not cold and indifferent, and her heroes are not mere caricatures, on the contrary, they are alive and real, and the reader quickly sympathizes with them, and can feel and understand their passions, needs, and disappointments. -- Prof. Nikolaos A. Vrissimtzis, Athens – Greece
