Sponsored by the Committee on Outreach and supported by the APA, Amphora will be for everyone interested in the study of ancient Greece and Rome. Engaging and informative, this publication is intended for a wide audience that will include professional classicists, present and former classics majors, interested academics and professionals in other fields, high-school teachers and students, administrators in the field of education, community leaders, and anyone with a strong interest in or enthusiasm for the classical world.
