Focusing on the first and last years of Libanius's Antiochene career (A.D. 354-388), this volume illustrates the great range of his rhetorical skills, while at the same time illuminating the intrigues of city politics and university life. The focal points are the great patriotic Antiochikos (Oration 11), delivered soon after Libanius's return to his native city, and the long defense of his educational system (Oration 62) from almost thirty years later. The majority of these speeches have not previously been translated into English.
