First I want to say how awesome PBSwap is!  A few weeks ago I ordered the Greenleaf Guide to Ancient Egypt.  I have also been able ot order most of the suggested resources that go with this curriculum. 

After Egypt, we'll be studying Greece.  Tell me your favorite resources for this time period (even if they aren't on your bookshelf).

For ancient Greece this year we used the book:

"Ancient Greece (DK Revealed)" by Peter Chrisp.  ISBN #: 9780789492715

I'm not sure what grade level you are looking for but I used it for the 1st grade.  Older grades could also easily use this book.
