About the Author

Graeme Miles is a lecturer in classics at the University of Tasmania. He researches in ancient Greek literature and thought, especially of the Roman era. He has published numerous articles on Philostratus and is currently produ​cing, with Dirk Baltzly and John Finamore, a translation of Proclus’ Commentary on Plato’s Republic.


"Philostratus: Interpreters and Interpetation is a stimulating, focused and coherent first book and first contribution to a new series. It should, as the author hopes with a traditional envoi in his last paragraph, happily encourage further research in an important area of understanding the Greek culture of the Roman Empire."- Simon Goldhill, University of Cambridge, UK, Byrn Mawr Classical Review 2018
