About the Authors
  • This is an edition of the Greek text with commentary of three speeches by Dio of Prusa (Dio Chrysostom) which are particulary important for the intellectual history of the Greco-Roman world. They are full of colorful narrative, myth and satire. While "Euboicus" (VII) is well known for its pastoral episodes of Dio's visit to the isolated community of hunters, "Olympicus" (XII) is an important document in the history of aesthetics, and "Borystheniticus" (XXXVI) gives a glimpse of a remote city in Southern Russia. These speeches have never been the subject of a commentary in English.

    • No other edition in English for students
    • Very little available on this subject area for students

    "This richly, helpfully annotated text will introduce anyone with a year or two of Greek to philosophical theology from a formative period of Western thought!" A. T. Kraabel, Religious Studies Review
