About the Authors
  • This volume provides a commentary on the six speeches of the fifth-century BC Athenian orator Antiphon, all of which concern homicide. This is the first complete English commentary on Antiphon and the first in any language since 1838. The book opens with a substantial introduction to the life and work of Antiphon and the nature of Athenian law and legal oratory. A new Greek text follows. The commentary itself discusses grammatical, stylistic, legal, rhetorical and historical matters.

    • Frst commentary in any language on Antiphon since 1838
    • Antiphon is a very useful text for teaching undergraduates to read Greek - not too complicated and interesting subject matter
    • The volume provides a good introduction to Athenian law and legal oratory, especially to homicide law
