The «Halieutica» by Oppian of Cilicia (late II AD) is the most significant Greek didactic epic poem of the Imperial Age. This new and scrupulous study guides the reader through the poet's laboratory showing the tools Oppian used to transform his fishing and ichthyological knowledge into a highly artistic literary work. Constant reference to former and later didactic poems helps to single out «Halieutica» within this genre.
