Christian Habicht


The following is the text of a talk delivered at the River Club in Colombus, Ohio, on the occasion of Stephen Tracy’s retirement from the Department of Classics at Ohio State University to assume the Directorship of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

The Need for a Digital Approach”, American Journal of Archaeology, 113, 2009, 99-102, and other work listed below in “The Scholarly Work of Stephen V. Tracy”.
