Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Will be of interest both to those who know Greek and to those who do not, and, it is hoped, will provide a contribution to the serious study of the sophist movement. . . . Fascinating reading. --The Classical Review

The volume also includes Sprague's (emerita, philosophy and Greek, U. of South Carolina) translation of Euthydemus and a completely re-edited Antiphon. Annotation c.
