Piotr Głogowski, “Cyrus the Younger and his Persians: The Dynamics of Power”

Several episodes imply that support of Cyrus by his Persian followers was not a given or static, and declined significantly when his intent to attack Artaxerxes became clear.

Rodrigo Illarraga, “Xenophon’s Psychology of philotimia

Xenophon distinguishes false/selfish and true/public philotimia, the latter being characterized by sophrosune and expressing a self-interest that is also a good for the community.

Thomas Koentges, “The Un-Platonic Menexenus: A Stylometric Analysis with More Data”

Analysis using word and character frequencies in and beyond the Corpus Platonicum, balanced against philological arguments about authorship, make attribution of the Menexenus to Plato improbable.

Mitchell H. Parks, “Reapportioning Honors: Intertextuality in Against Leptines

Demosthenes engages intertextually with Xenophon’s Agesilaus and Isocrates’ Evagoras in order to justify the role of praise and honor in Athenian society.

Francis Cairns, “The Terms komos and paraclausithyron

The terms have often been employed in confused ways: the Plutarchan hapax παρακλαυσίθυρον is only the lover’s song, while his conduct as a whole is a κῶμος.

Julie Van Pelt, “Disguised Identity and Recognition in the Life of Gregory of Agrigento (BHG 707)”

The author has lent drama to his story by using the theme of disguise found in some other saints’ lives and in particular in the Life of Euphrosyne (BHG 625), which shows specific textual parallels.

Theofili Kampianaki, “Perceptions of Flavius Josephus in the Medieval Greek and Latin Literary Traditions”

In both the Byzantine East and the Latin West, authors saw the utility of Josephus for early Christian history and celebrated him for his truthfulness, wisdom, and narrative skill.
