A Commentary on Plutarch's Life of Agesilaos: Response to Sources in the Presentation of Character


Shipley presents the first modern commentary on Plutarch's Life of Agesilaos (c.444-360 BC) together with the full Greek text and a bibliography. Plutarch's biographies have long been valued for their literary, philosophic, and historiographic content, and the Life of Agesilaos, king of Sparta for forty years after the Peloponnesian war, has special interest as an introduction to Greek history, society, and culture in the fourth century.
