Summary:A collection of articles on the gift in the ancient world, including contributions from archaeologists, Hellenists, Latinists, anthropologists, scholars of political philosophy, and writers on the relationship between economics and society. From civic ceremonies to marriage rites, from the duties of hospitality to amorous conquest and military alliances, the gift is not only a private and individual act: it is a collective practice in society, a guarantee of social cohesion, and an expression of the internal harmony of a community.
