Areas of Specialization: Ancient Greece and Rome

Elias Kapetanopoulos received his B.A. in history from Wayne State University in 1957. He completed his M.A. and Ph.D. in classics at Yale University in 1959 and 1964 respectively. Dr. Kapetanopoulos joined the CCSU faculty in 1968. Prior to his arrival, he taught at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

Dr. Kapetanopoulos’ teaching covers classical/Hellenistic Greece: Athens - Sparta - Macedonia, and republican/imperial Rome, with such special course topics as "History and Homer" and "Greek and Roman Drama." His current research focuses upon Athenian institutions of the Roman period (200 B.C.-A.D. 300) and early Macedonia. He is completing a manuscript entitled, "Relatives among the Athenian Prytaneis of A.D. 100-256." For more information, please consult Dr. Kapetanopoulos’ personal website.
