Summary (From the publisher):

In this new collection twenty-two writers take up their pens to give an enthralling picture of classical crime. Favourite historical detectives Gordianus the Finder, Decius Metellus and Sister Fidelma rub shoulders with eminent temporary sleuths such as Socrates and that honourable man Brutus, whilst other great names - Augustus, Archimedes, and even the spoilt and beautiful goddess of love, Aphrodite herself - also become enmeshed in terrible and ingenious crimes.
