More than any other work, the speech of Andokides, On the Mysteries, provides an intimate and vivid glimpse of Athenian political life during and directly after the Peloponnesian War. This new paperback version of MacDowell's standard edition (first published in hardcover in 1962) is intended for both undergraduates and scholars. It includes a full introduction surveying Andokides's life, trial, and literary style; a note on the basis of the text; and a detailed commentary and appendices that discuss Andokides' innocence or guilt, the chronology and political significance of events in 415 B.C., the legal revision ordered by the decree of Teisamenos, the date of the trial and speech, and aspects of the historical and stylistic background relevant to the work.

Review:

'this book belongs on any shortlist of really useful editions' Classical Philology

'As a reference work this volume will be useful even to the reader who knows no Greek. For those who have studied the language for two or three years, it is particularly valuable because the notes are carefully designed at once to aid the advanced student and yet to provide ... new material for the scholar.' Times Educational Supplement

Synopsis:

A more intimate and vivid glimpse of Athenian political life during and directly after the Peloponnesian War is provided by the speech of Andokides On the Mysteries than by any other work: it is also a major source of legal and prosopographical information, and an important specimen of Attic prose style in the most crucial period of its development. Despite this it has been unduly neglected in recent years, partly for lack of an up-to-date English commentary. This new paperback version of MacDowell's standard edition (first published in hardback in 1962) is intended both for undergraduates and professional scholars. The revised text (notably more conservative than other modern texts) with apparatus criticus is supplemented with a full introduction surveying the life and trial of Andokides and his literary style; a note on the basis of the text; a detailed commentary; and appendices which discuss Andokides' innocence or guilt, the chronology and political significance of events in 415 BC, the legal revision ordered by the decree of Teisamenos, the date of the trial and the speech, and aspects of the historical and stylistic background relevant to the work.
