In "Solon the philosopher" John Lewis offers the speculation that Solon observed Athens as a self-governing, self-supporting procedure corresponding to the early Greek conceptions of the cosmos.

10 angela longo and daniela patrizia taormina These different perspectives cover a wide range of theoretical aspects: from ethics (Longo, Mazzetti, Linguiti, Marsola) to epistemology (Morel, Taormina, Cornea), and from physics (Ninci, Eliasson, Linguiti, Mazzetti) to anthropology (Marsola). The volume opens with a liminaire article by T. Dorandi, ‘The school and texts of Epicurus in the early centuries of the Roman empire’ (Chapter 1). This study serves a preliminary function and helps frame the enquiry as a whole.

It consists of three parts: the first (ll. 8–13) concerns the headquarters of the Epicurean school at Athens; the second (ll. 13–23), gifts from the emperor to the Epicureans (one gift was granted, if only in part; another refused); finally, the third section (ll. 23–9) discusses certain regulations concerning succession within the school and the need to secure a future for the school itself. The context in which the letter was written was Heliodorus’ request for too big a favour from the emperor.

Glucker takes the formula ὁ διάδοχος τῶν ἀπὸ Ζήνωνος λόγων to mean ‘a professor of Zenonian philosophy’; hence, διάδοχος Στωϊκός would simply mean ‘a professor of Stoic philosophy’. Glucker doubts that the succession of Epicurean scholars might have extended down to the Hadrianic age, and regards the figures of Popillius Theotimus and Heliodorus as two ‘semi-private διάδοχοι’ of the Epicurean αἵρεσις – prototypes for the kind of professors of Epicurean philosophy who later filled the chairs created by Marcus Aurelius.
