Pam Baddeley
Can't recommend as it is very downbeat. If you know Greek mythology you know it won't end well, but there is even greater emphasis on how men are downtreading women than in her Mabinogion books, and in this one the women are buying into it, even the Amazons [spoiler]self destructing by the end[/spoiler]. It is the first in her Theseus trilogy. The others were never published and I wouldn't read them if they were!
Thomas Ray
A story of the battle of the sexes, set in ancient Greece and Anatolia, shortly after society and religion changed from matrilineal clans to warlord-dominated civilization.

Set during the reign of Egyptian pharoh Akhnaton (Amenhotep IV), circa 1352-1335 BCE and Hittite king Subbiluliuma
