Ancient Greek Historical Fiction


Can anyone recommend some Ancient Greek historical friction? Preferably something in the same style as Bernard Cornwell or Conn Iggulden.

Mary Renault has written eight acclaimed works of Historical fiction, mostly about Alexander the Great but other classical Greeks too. Recommended.
