Description:
Deborah Lyons argues for the heroine as a distinct category in ancient Greek religious ideology and daily practice. The heroine, she believes, must be located within a network of relations between male and female, mortal and immortal. The book discusses heroines both in relation to heroes and as a separate religious and mythic phenomenon.
