At the end of this Companion’s journey, we would like to thank a number of people for their valuable participation.
First of all we would like to express our gratitude to the editor of the series “Brill’s Companions to the Classical Reception”, Kyriakos N. Demetriou, for having warmly welcomed our volume proposal from the very beginning –
Of course the book would not have existed without the expert scholarship and the fine work of our contributors. Now is the time to thank all of them for their eagerness to honour our proposal, for their attentiveness, and for their generosity. It was a real pleasure to collaborate with them!
Special thanks are due to Giulia Moriconi, the associate editor for Classical studies at Brill, for her availability and efficiency at all stages of the book’s production; to the anonymous readers, for their very substantial suggestions, which helped us to improve the book as a whole both in form and content; to Claire Raynal (LEM, EPHE, PSL University), for the care with which she helped us in formatting the individual chapters at an initial stage; to the proofreader and to the editorial team at Brill for their expert work while preparing this volume for publication.
We would also like to thank the ‘Fondation Martin Bodmer’ (Geneva) for granting us reproduction rights of the image used for the cover of the volume.
Last but not least, we are particularly thankful to our ‘research units’ for their continuous support and to the French ‘National Centre for Scientific Research’ (CNRS) for the freedom of thought and expression it grants its fellows.
