Βορειοελλαδικά brings together the papers presented at the International Conference held in 2015 in honour of Miltiades B. Hatzopoulos, former Di-rector of the Centre for Greek and Roman Antiquity of the National Hellenic Research Foundation – currently Section of Greek and Roman Antiquity of the Institute of Historical Research/NHRF. The twenty-nine contributions collect-ed in this volume have been authored by experts in the major disciplines of Classical Studies, focusing on the geographical area to which the honourand himself has primarily devoted his intellect, namely the northern Greek ‘con-tinuum’ of Thessaly, Epirus, Macedonia and Thrace. Either venturing synthetic approaches or answers to more specific questions, authors in this volume are concerned with vital aspects of the organization of the ancient societies of the Greek North and, consequently, of our own understanding of these societies: language and onomastics; politics, institutions, economy; material culture and religion.
