The quality as well as the historical view of the flourishing bilingual literature of the second century AD is increasingly recognized, but it has been rarely discussed with both Greek and Latin sides linked. This volume collects together eight papers which together offer a wide view of the intellectual and literary world of the Antonines. There are special studies on Plutarch's Lives (C. B. R. Pelling), Lucian's Prologues (H. G. Nesselrath), Aristides' Hymns (D. A. Russell), and Apuleius' Cupid and Psyche (E. J. Kenney). The relationship between the two literary languages is an important theme of the introductory paper (D. A. Russell) and there are also essays on the neglected topic of Greek poetry of the period (E. L. Bowie), on the definition of the Second Sophistic (G. Anderson), and on the influence of Plato's Phaedrus in this period (M. B. Trapp). There is a full bibliography and a brief table of important dates.
