Edited with Introduction, Translation, and Commentary by Judson Herrman

Society for Classical Studies American Classical Studies

Hyperides' Funeral Oration is arguably the most important surviving example of the genre from classical Greece. Judson Herrman's unparalleled edition will make the speech much more accessible to a wide range of scholars. The text is based on a full examination of the papyrus and includes an apparatus criticus, with a complete listing of all conjectures in a separate appendix. The translation is clear and accurate and the commentary provides a mixture of historical, cultural, and literary material.
