In writing this book I have received an incalculable amount of encour­agement and enthusiasm from Ann Jones, who is also responsible forthe line drawings. I am very grateful to Barry Kemp, who read andcommented on the final draft of the text, and to Peter Clayton andKenneth Kitchen, who kindly provided some of the photographs. Thedynastic chronology is based on that of Dr William J. Murnane andacknowledgement is made to him and to Penguin Books for its use here.
