GRBS 64.1:

Benny Kozian, “The παιδαγωγός in Euripides’ Ion: An Unwitting Purifier of Athenian Identity"

The paidagogos serves to represent the uncivilized Other, incompatible with Athenian autochthony, and his eventual removal dissociates Kreousa and Ion from his characteristics.

Robert Mayhew, “Evidence for Aristotle’s Lost Zoîka in Apuleius’ Apologia 36–40"

Two passages of the Pro se de magia ought to be considered fragments from Aristotle’s ZoïkaApol. 40.11 on the ‘donkey’ fish and 38.2–3 on the spontaneous generation of eels.

Owen Ewald, “Asking and Answering: An Indian Genre in Greek?" 

The Greek accounts of Alexander’s confrontation with the Gymnosophists at Taxila show specific stylistic and topical similarities to the Sanskrit Upanishads, suggesting a migration of ideas to the West.

Rory O’Sullivan, “The Hierarchy of Pleasures in Longus’ Daphnis and Chloe and Thucydides’ Peloponnesian War" 

Longus’ allusions to Thucydides’ “possession for all time” emphasize how both narratives portray a similar hierarchy, fleeting pleasures versus true ones.

Dimitris Roumpekas, “Ἀνθρωπόδηκτοι" 

Ancient medical and other writers make it possible to study the particular motives, effects, and treatments of wounds inflicted by human bites.

Jeffrey Beneker, “‘Your God will be my God’: How John Zonaras Rewrote Plutarch’s Alexander" 

In narrating, from Josephus, Alexander’s visit to Jerusalem, Zonaras inserts a summary of Plutarch’s Life which he carefully modifies so as to make credible Josephus’ report of Alexander’s deference to the true God.
