Synopses & Reviews
This collection of writings presents the work of one of the most influential classical scholars of this century. The editors bring together for the first time Raubitschek's most significant publications, gathered from diverse and in many cases inaccessible sources. The selections include "The Treaties Between Persia and Athens," "The Peace Policy of Pericles," "Corinth and Athens Before the Peloponnesian War," "The Origin of Ostracism," "Theophrastos on Ostracism," "The Case Against Alcibiades," "The Priestess of Pandrosos," "The New Homer," "The Eleusinian Spondai," "The Speech of the Athenians at Sparta," "Andocides and Thucydides," and numerous book reviews. Together the essays provide rich insights into the ancient authors and monuments as they were meant to be understood in antiquity.
