Archestratos of Gela: Greek Culture and Cuisine in the Fourth Century Bce


Text, Translation, and Commentary
by Archestratus, Alexander Sens


Archestratos of Gela's Life of Luxury is a fundamental source for our understanding not only of fourth-century literature but also of the significance of food and dining, and the reception of epic poetry in the late classical period. This edition is based on a fresh examination of the manuscripts and is the first to combine a critical text of the poem with a translation, a detailed commentary, and an extensive introduction situating the work in its literary, social, and cultural context.
