This book examines dwarfs in myth and everyday life in ancient Egypt and Greece. The spectacular forms of dwarfism were always a focus of interest, and it is the most depicted disorder in antiquity. Dasen brings together a whole range of mostly unpublished or little-known iconographic, epigraphic, literary, and anthropological evidence.
