This is an auction for CLEOPATRA by Michael Grant. reviews:

"Queen of Egypt, scholar, murderer, lover of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony...the perfect subject for distinguished historian Grant, who debunks the image of a wayward woman and replaces it with a brilliant linguist and strategist."

"Cleopatra is a fascinating figure... renowned as a patron of arts and learning, a gifted linguist, and a canny politicians, she is too often remembered as a sex kitten. Grant cuts thru the myths, pro- and anti propaganda to deliver what is probably the best biography on Cleopatra. Writen by one of the marquee lights of classical history, the book is written in academic style, although for the most part it is highly readable: once the story begins it takes off like a grand soap opera. Not as splashy as some other works on the great queen, this is *the* place to go for a detailed, comprehensive look at Cleopatra."

"FIVE STARS!!! This biography of Cleopatra is magnificent. As an attempt at an historical biography of this most famous queen that is not colored by the propaganda that was circulated by Rome, and that has persisted even until today, Grant's book is an unmitigated success. Grant reminds us the Cleopatra was not a beautiful woman but a powerful monarch who ruled her country well, was loved by all her subjects and stood toe to toe with Rome when the world was caving to their influence. I loved this book."
