A New Work by Apuleius: The Lost Third Book of the De Platone

Edited and Translated with an Introduction and Commentary by

Justin A. Stover

  • The first time the text of this extensive but neglected ancient manuscript has appeared in print, complete with English translation and comprehensive commentary
  • Presents a compelling case for attributing the text to the North African polymath of the late second century, Apuleius
  • Provides two apparatus which offer complete information on the manuscript readings, as well as the extensive cross-references which are an essential part of the fabric of the work
