This tour of the classical city of Athens takes the reader from the Acropolis to the theatre, from the political, civic and commercial centres, to the harbour and surrounding countryside. Rather than describing the areas and their buildings, it provides the historical and social background to the different parts of the city giving some idea of what life might have been like in Athens. This is not an aid to navigating around the city, there are no maps or directions, but it fills in the gaps between what you see and what you may alreadt know.

English summary: This volume contains a full translation and commentary of Dio of Prusa's Euboean Oration, of which generally only the first part, a short narrative about the life of a hunter's family in southern Euboea, is known. The second part of the speech, however, is at least of equal interest, because it presents a substantial social and economic program that is to ensure decent working conditions and a humane livelihood especially for the urban poor. This program is closely connected with Dio's lifelong engagement not only as a politician in his native city of Prusa, but also as a philosophical counsellor and orator in Rome. A number of essays illuminate the literary, archaeological, ethical and sociopolitical aspects of this work and thus make it possible (for the first time) to fully appreciate its contents. German description: Der von Gustav Adolf Lehmann herausgegebene Band enthalt eine vollstandige Ubersetzung und Kommentierung der Euboischen Rede des Dion von Prusa, von der allgemein nur der erste Teil, der Kurz-Roman uber das Leben der Jagerfamilie in den Bergwaldern Sud-Euboas, bekannt ist. Tatsachlich umfasst die Euboische Rede jedoch in ihrem zweiten Teil ein bedeutendes soziales und okonomisches Programm, um gerade der urbanen Stadtarmut eine menschenwurdige Arbeits- und Existenzgrundlage zu geben. Dieses Programm ist mit Dions lebenslangem Engagement als Politiker in seiner Heimatstadt Prusa, aber auch mit seiner Rolle als philosophischer Berater und Redner in Rom eng verbunden. Eine Reihe von Essays erschliesst den literarischen, archaologischen, politisch-ethischen und politisch-sozialen Inhalt des Werkes und macht erstmals eine umfassende Wurdigung dieser Schrift moglich.
