Byzantine Authors: Literary Activities and Preoccupations: Text and Translations Dedicated to the Memory of Nicolas Oikonomides


In honouring the memory of Nicolas Oikonomides the contributors offer a group of Greek texts and translations which reflect the wide interests of Byzantine authors and the varied genres to which they devoted their talents. Within its pages one finds an ekphrasis of Christopher of Mitylene, military speeches of Constantine VII, letters of Michael Psellos, an historical narrative regarding Empress Helena and the Finding of the Cross, two teaching texts, and a lengthy instructional manual, accompanied by a reprint of the original Brill Greek text, on withstanding a siege.
