Indeed it does, thank you. Only I'm amazed to find that it is now _ten_
years since I first read this article.

Yes, I agree completely.
Indeed, only this week the RBL has posted a review of:
Jeffers, James S. The Greco-Roman World of the New Testament Era: Exploring

The review makes clear that is introductory, rather than scholarly, material.
Nevertheless, I think it may well be of interest --- and use -- to some on
the list.
