Networks in the Ancient Mediterranean

Not that I was googling myself, but I discovered that some of my work had been cited approvingly in the preface to an issue of the Mediterranean Historical Review (and here for online access), (2007, vol 22 n1) on social networks analysis in terms of ancient history. The entire issue looks absolutely fantastic, and I’m now working my way through it. This might be a great place for a grad student to start, if they’re interested in social networks applied to historical problems. (Another good starting place is definitely the Handbook of Prosopography edited by Katherine Keats-Rohan).
