1 - 2 weeks availability
Here, for the first time, is an annotated English translation of the eleven later panegyrics (291-389 C.E.) of the XII Panegyrici Latini, with the original Latin text prepared by R. A. B. Mynors. Each panegyric has a thorough introduction, and detailed commentary on historical events, style, figures of speech, and rhetorical strategies accompanies the translations. The very difficult Latin of these insightful speeches is rendered into graceful English, yet remains faithful to the original.
C. E. V. Nixon is formerly Associate Professor of Ancient History at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, and is currently Deputy Director of the Australian Centre for Numismatic Studies. Barbara Saylor Rodgers is Professor of Classics at the University of Vermont.
