Aeschines: Against Timarchos

Introduction, translation, and commentary by Nick Fisher

A Clarendon Press Publication

Clarendon Ancient History Series

Aeschines' successful prosecution against Timarchos of 346/5 BC is our best evidence for Athenian laws and moral attitudes concerning homosexuality, and for Athenians' moral expectations of their politicians. Though much discussed in recent years, the speech has never received a proper commentary. This book, which is fully accessible to those without knowledge of Greek, provides a new translation, a detailed commentary, and an introduction which explores in depth all the political and sexual issues.
