About the Author

Christopher P. Jones is George Martin Lane Professor of the Classics and of History, Emeritus, at Harvard University.


Jones has produced a superlative edition... The text is judicious and the translation stylishly captures the sophist’s rhetorical range. It is based on, but betters, [his] abridged translation for Penguin Classics, published in 1970. It is a good read in its own right: no mean feat. Excellent introductory material and maps help chart Apollonius’s imaginary journey. He may no longer be worshipped (except in the wackier corners of cyberspace), but nonetheless we can rightly say: Apollonius Lives!
*Times Literary Supplement*

This new Loeb edition of Apollonius... fulfills admirably the aims of this series... The introduction, as one would expect from Jones, touches upon all the important features of this rich text and reflects great familiarity with the scholarship in all fields—from history and literature to philosophy and theology—which have been concerned with it.
