Anna Accettola received her B.A. in history and classical studies from the University of the Pacific, her M.A. in Greek and Roman Studies from Brandeis University, and her Ph.D. in history from the University of California, Los Angeles. Her main research interest involves the economic inclusion and exclusion of non-Greek foreigners in Greek city-states during the late Classical and Hellenistic periods. Accettola is an expert in material culture and specializes in numismatics (the study of ancient coins). Her dissertation was on the economic, social, and legal mechanisms which supported long-distance trade between the Greek city-states and the Nabataean Kingdom. She also studies the experience of being female and foreign as portrayed by Greek men in ancient drama.
