Josiah Ober, The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece. This new history of ancient Greece has an intriguing estimate of living standards during that time, I hope to spend more time with it soon. Ober argues there was plenty of economic growth at the time and that the Greeks lived at well above subsistence; I agree with both of those claims.
Here is the book’s home page. Here is one useful review, though its carps at the books’ economism. Other reviews are here. As a first-order approximation, you can think of this book as how an economist might think about ancient Greece.
