Translated title:
Libanius, Declamatio 21: Introduction, translation and commentary
Summary:
Antiochene orator Libanius, active in the 4th-century A.D., wrote a large quantity of literary works, progymnasmata, and letters. The works attributed to him include among others speeches, fifty-one (51) declamations. In Libanius' “Philippic” Declamation 21, Philip of Macedonia sent after the battle of Chaeronea, a message to Athens promising to return the two thousand war prisoners, in exchange for Demosthenes. The orator demands to be handed over. This dissertation examines the literary genre of declamation, the program of Libanius as a rhetorical teacher and the presence of Attic orator Demosthenes in Libanius' declamations. The study offers the first translation of Declamation 21 into a modern European language, as well as the first commentary. The commentary focuses upon the rhetorical structure, terms and content of the speech. Another aspect that is investigated concerns the historical sources on which Libanius relied when creating Declamation 21, in the 4th-century A.D.
