A Textual Companion to the Noctes Atticae of Aulus Gellius

Leofranc Holford-Strevens

  • An authoritative companion volume to the author's Oxford Classical Texts edition of Aulus Gellius' Noctes Atticae
  • Offers more expansive explanations of textual decisions than are accommodated by the edition's apparatus criticus
  • Includes an extensive list of places where scribes have misread a word as a Christian term with which they were familiar, drawing attention to a known phenomenon rarely considered in detail
  • Corrects and revises the author's previous publications on Gellius in a separate appendix, providing readers with updated scholarship
