Classical Studies

Back to Editorial Overview


Walter de Gruyter is one of the premier publishers in Classical Studies. We have an expansive portfolio of important editions and reference works as well as a number of interdisciplinary series and journals and we publish over 120 new titles every year.

We specialize in a broad range of disciplines that encompass  the history and culture of the ancient Mediterranean and Egypt in all their aspects. We are a leading publisher in Epigraphy, Papyrology, and Archaeology, and have longstanding relationships with important institutions and scholarly organizations such as the German Archaeological Institute.

Thanks to our large network of scholars and academics and our international marketing and sales strategies, our publications reach a wide audience.

We think that close cooperation with our authors and editors is extremely important.
