Glenn Bugh is associate professor of ancient and Byzantine history at Virginia Polytechnical Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia. A recipient of fellowships from the American School of Classical Studies in Athens and the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, DC, he recently served as Whitehead Visiting Professor at the American School of Classical Studies. He is the author of The Horsemen of Athens.
The last major work devoted exclusively to the subject appeared in French in 1886 and predated the publication of Aristotle's Constitution of the Athenians, which provides valuable information not only on the administration of the Athenian cavalry but also on the democracy that financed it. Furthermore, since the 1930s the American excavations of the Athenian marketplace and the German excavations of the ancient cemetery have yielded unparalleled epigraphical evidence pertaining to the Athenian cavalry, particularly in the areas of personnel and administration.
Originally published in 1988.
