Arrian: Anabasis of Alexander, Books V-VII: Indica (LCL No. 269) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arrian's Anabasis of Alexander in seven books is the best account we have of Alexander's adult life. Indica, a description of India and of Nearchus's voyage therefrom, was to be a supplement.

A student of Epictetus, Arrian took notes at his lectures and published them (in eight books of which we have four, The Discourses) and also the Encheiridion or Manual of Epictetus. Both works are available in the Loeb Epictetus edition.

The Loeb Classical Library edition of Arrian is in two volumes.

Synopsis:

The Anabasis of Alexander by Arrian (ca. 95-175 BCE) is the best extant account of Alexander the Great's adult life. A description of India and of Nearchus' voyage thence, was to be a supplement.

Description:

Bibliography, v. 1: p. lxxxii-lxxxiv.

About the Author

Arrian (Flavius Arrianus), of the period ca. AD 95–175, was a Greek historian and philosopher of Nicomedia in Bithynia. Both a Roman and an Athenian citizen, he was governor of the Roman province ofCappadocia 132–137, and repelled an invasion of the Alani in 134. He retired then to Athens (where he was archon in 148–149) and later to Nicomedia.
