In the Deipnosophists or Sophists at Dinner, Athenaeus pretends to tell about a dinner party at a scholar's house to which guests brought texts for reading and discussion. The work is enjoyable in itself and of great value as a treasury of quotations from works now lost. The reader also learns much about Greek, Persian, Roman, and Sicilian cuisine; the music and entertainments that ornamented banquets; and the intellectual talk that was the heart of Greek conviviality.
