Nineteen essays on various aspects of ancient gnomic literature, from the «Sayings of The Seven Sages» to the definition and practical application of anecdote (chreia) in a scholastic and philosophical context (both pagan and Christian). Topics include the «Comparatio Menandri et Philistionis», the reception of gnomic literature in the Syriac and Arabic world, the transmission of Platonic and Democritean dicta, and the bibliological problems encountered in gnomic literature from papyri to Renaissance editions.
