The book opens with a substantial introduction to the life and work of Antiphon and the nature of Athenian law and legal oratory. A new Greek text follows. The commentary itself discusses grammatical, stylistic, legal, rhetorical and historical matters.First commentary in any language on Antiphon since 1838Antiphon is a very useful text for teaching undergraduates to read Greek--not too complicated and interesting subject matterThe volume provides a good introduction to Athenian law and legal oratory, especially to homicide lawContentsIntroduction1.
