Opuscula de rebus mirabilibus et de longaevis

Only two works of Phlegon of Tralles (2 nd century AD) have survived: On marvellous things and On long-lived people . The former is the main extant paradoxographic collection from classical antiquity, most famous for its memorable ghost stories (one of which inspired Goethe); the latter contains lists of long-lived individuals from both archival and literary sources, of great interest to ancient historians and students of onomastics. Both works are extensively interspersed with oracles, mainly Sibylline. This edition finally provides a reliable Greek text and the basic tools to approach an amazing corner of the classical heritage.
