An authority on Greek, Roman, and Near Eastern history and culture as well as the classical tradition in modern literature, Bowersock uses his knowledge of classical texts, together with inscriptions, coins, mosaics, and archaeological remains, to illuminate the mingling of different cultures and to draw unexpected and revelatory conclusions.
