“Brill’s Companions offer up-to-date surveys and scholarship on anything from Greek comedy – one of the unmissable volumes – to Aphrodite, Ovid, and the Greek and Latin pastoral. They are not only valuable for their authors’ individual approaches and chosen themes: they are backed by notes and bibliographies, which are among my first resorts when embarking on a new project or returning to a well-loved subject. Brill set the standard for classical Companions; they have yet to be surpassed by others.” - Robin Lane Fox, University of Oxford
“Brill’s Companions consist of not just one series but a set of series, dedicated to Classical Studies, Classical Reception, the Christian Tradition and other fields of research, including literature, history, and philosophy. Together they present a truly impressive number of highly useful reference works, which scholars can consult to quickly acquaint themselves with a particular subject. As a classical scholar I often use Brill's Companions to Classical Studies, with great satisfaction.” - Franco Montanari, University of Genoa
