COHEN, ROBERT (1889–1939), French historian of ancient Greece. He served in the French Army in World War i, was seriously wounded, and was decorated for bravery. Cohen taught at the Lycée Henri iv in Paris. He collaborated with his former teacher, Gustave Glotz, and Pierre Roussel on the four volumes of the Histoire générale dealing with Greece (Histoire grecque, 1926–38). Other works include La Grèce et l'hellénisation du monde antique (1934) and Athènes, une démocratie de sa naissance à sa mort (1936). Cohen's work is distinguished by an appreciation of the importance of ancillary disciplines and exhaustive bibliographies to historical studies.
