Book - 2003
Rate this:
Although the title ascribes these ten speeches to the greatest Attic orator Demosthenes, there is much debate as to whether some of these were in fact the work of Apollodorus. This volume belongs to a series devoted to providing English translations of surviving speeches from the late 5th and 4th centuries BC. An introduction to Demosthenes and his work is written by Michael Gagarin whereas the following translations of speeches 50-59, each preceded by a short introduction, are by Victor Bers. Most of the speeches concern relationships between Athenian citizens and state institutions and provide insights into public and private life in 4th-century Athens.
