Show Summary Details


Like comedy, Athenian forensic oratory provides insight into popular attitudes toward homosexual practices. The orators give a rich store of valuable information about Greek daily life and thus afford a glimpse into some details about the actual practice of Athenian pederasty not available elsewhere. Fragments from On the Mysteries, Against Teisis, Against Alcibiades, Against Simon, On the Estate of Aristarchus, Against Androtion, Against Timarchus, On the Corrupt Embassy, On the Embassy, Against Ctesiphon, Hyperides, Erotic Essay, and Leucippe and Clitophon are presented as well.
