This study is the first to assemble the evidence for the existence of sorcerers in the ancient world; it also addresses the question of their identity and social origins – taking us to the underside of Greek and Roman society, into a world of wandering holy men and women, conjurors and wonder-workers, and into the lives of prostitutes, charioteers and theatrical performers. This fascinating reconstruction allows us to look into previously inaccessible areas of Greco-Roman life.
