Product Overview

Arrian, Greek man of letters and Roman senator, and best known as a philosopher and the historian of Alexander, also enjoyed a successful political and military career, and the friendship of the emperor Hadrian.His Peripus Ponti Euxini, mixing the literary forms of a friendly letter and the traditional Greek periplus, or coastal guide, describes a tour of duty around the Black Sea undertaken in his official capacity as governor of the frontier province of Cappadocia, and contains important evidence for this crucial corner of the eastern frontier of the Empire.But it also affords us a unique insight into the cultural and political background of the early second century, from a man well placed not only to understand, but also to promote the new common imperial culture being forged by the hellenophile emperor.
