Few figures from Greco-Roman Antiquity have undergone as much reassessment in recent decades as Callimachus of Cyrene, active at the Alexandrian court of the Ptolemies for much of the third century B.C.E. Once perceived as a supreme example of ivory tower detachment and voice of abstruse learning, Callimachus is now far more widely appreciated as supreme artist of a powerful and vibrant court, and as a cultural figure second only to Homer in his later reception. Presenting Callimachus to a modern audience has been impeded, until now, by the diffusion and inaccessibility of source materials. This problem Brill's Companion to Callimachus, which treats Callimachus both in terms of his work and his physical texts, will do much to resolve.
