This monograph provides a thorough account of the history of Corcyra from its foundation as a Corinthian colony to the end of Antiquity in two volumes: A (chs I-XV) and B (chs XVI-XVIII). The first volume analyzes its geographical location, history, economy and monetary policy (chs I-XII), institutions, legendary background, identity and religious life (chs XIII, XIV, XV). The second volume studies Corcyrean prosopography (XVI), onomastics (XVII) and society (XVIII). This volume also contains lists of names, three Appendices, bibliography and different indices, plates depicting coins of Corcyra, and a map of the island. All literary and epigraphic evidence is taken into account together with what we know about its coinage and, as far as possible, archaeological data.
