Aminziano: opera e identità
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
This paper aims to shed new light on the 2nd Century AD writer Amyntianus, so far known only for his literary and historical production reported by Photius. Having reconsidered the information conveyed by the patriarch and stressed his debts towards Arrian and Plutarch in the first part, the second part takes into account new evidence, both literary (Suda) and epigraphical, in order to reconstruct his identity and his family ties, which show clear links both with Plutarch and Marcus Aurelius, in perfect and corroborative agreement with Photian data.
