The first translation, produced by a team of eight scholars, of the Declamations and Preliminary Talks of the sixth-century sophist Choricius of Gaza. Declamations, deliberative or judicial orations on fictitious themes, were the fundamental advanced exercises of the rhetorical schools of the Roman Empire, of interest also to audiences outside the schools. Some of Choricius' declamations are on generic themes (e.g. a tyrannicide, a war-hero), while others are based on specific motifs from Homeric times or from classical Greek history. The Preliminary Talks were typical prefaces to orations of all kinds. This volume also contains a detailed study of Choricius' reception in Byzantium and Renaissance Italy. It will be of interest to students of late antiquity, ancient rhetoric, and ancient education.

Review:

'Rhetorical Exercises from Late Antiquity brings attention to an important representative of the rhetorical environment at the end of antiquity. The reliable translation makes a difficult Greek author accessible to a wider audience, and Amato's meticulous epilogue fills a gap in Chorician scholarship that truly needed to be filled. Taken as a whole, the book will be an indispensable aid to anyone interested in Choricius.' Rhetorical Reviews

'This edition is well written and well edited ... Penella expresses the wish at the end of his introduction that this translation will make Choricius and the School of Gaza better known. I believe he has admirably accomplished this goal.' Heather Waddell Gruber, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
