The learned banqueters by Athenaeus( Book )

216 editions published between 1498 and 2010 in 12 languages and held by 1,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Learned Banqueters, Athenaeus describes a series of dinner parties at which the guests quote extensively from Greek literature. The work (which dates to the very end of the second century CE) is amusing reading and of extraordinary value as a treasury of quotations from works now lost. Athenaeus also preserves a wide range of information about different cuisines and foodstuffs, the music and entertainments that ornamented banquets, and the intellectual talk that was the heart of Greek conviviality.--
The Deipnosophists by Athenaeus( Book )

38 editions published between 1927 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 1,064 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ATHENAEUS (c. A.D. 170-c. 230) a Greek of Naucratis in Egypt, lived at Rome and wrote a historical work now lost. Of the fifteen books of his surviving Deipnosophistae (Sophists at Dinner, or Professors of the Dinner-Table), the first two and parts of the third, eleventh, and fifteenth exist only in summary, the rest apparently complete. He pretends to tell a friend about a banquet at a scholars house wither the learned guests brought extracts from poetry for recitation and discussion. Much of the matter however concerns the food provided and accessories. One learns about cooks, strange dishes, wines, menu-cards, and countless other matters. Athenaeus was an antiquarian. The whole work, which mentions nearly eight hundred writers and two thousand fife hundred writings, is a very large treasury of information not only about table-matters but also music, dances, games, and all sorts of literary subjects; and abounds in quotations, mostly made direct by Athenaeus himself, from authors whose writings have not survived; it is one of the most important products of ancient literature
