- About this book
This longest among the 156 epistles of Synesius of Cyrene (IV-V cent. a. D.) is one of the richest and most brilliant sea-tales from Antiquity, full of interesting and highly stimulating information about religious, social and obviously nautical history. The book illustrates this remarkable piece of literature in the most complete manner, with Greek text, Italian translation, introduction, full-scale commentary and three excursuses on particular aspects of special interest.
