    schema:description "This volume provides a commentary on the six surviving speeches of the fifth-century BC Athenian orator Antiphon, all of which concern homicide, together with a fragment of Antiphon's final speech at his own trial for treason in 411 BC. The commentary discusses grammatical, stylistic, textual, legal, rhetorical, historical and other matters and focuses especially on Antiphon's argumentation and forensic strategy: why he presents these arguments in this particular way. The work includes a new, fairly conservative, Greek text which restores some of the special qualities of Antiphon's style that twentieth-century editors have edited out; and a substantial introduction to the life and work of Antiphon (including the identity of the sophist Antiphon and the authenticity of the three Tetralogies), the nature of Athenian law and legal oratory (including the rhetoric of law), and the style and textual tradition of Antiphon. A bibliography and indices are included." ;
