The Bronze God of Rhodes

(1960)
A novel by

 
The Bronze God of Rhodes is written as the memoirs of Chares of Lindos.

Chares of Lindos was a Greek sculptor born on the island of Rhodes. A pupil of Lysippos, Chares eventually built the Colossus of Rhodes, now considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

These memoirs present the trials and tribulations (some of them hilarious) of the sculptor as he undertakes various projects and is forced into a number of adventures, particularly in Ptolemaic Egypt.

This is the second historical novel that L. Sprague de Camp wrote (in order of writing), drawing upon his extensive and detailed historical knowledge of the period.
