Andocides was one of the ten Attic orators included in the “Alexandrian Canon” compiled in the third century BC. The son of Leogoras, Andocides belonged to the ancient Eupatrid family of the Kerykes, who traced their lineage to Odysseus and Hermes. He led a political life of misadventures, involving four exiles, numerous accusations, trials, acquittals and condemnations, all set against the turbulent backdrop of this pivotal period of the Athenian Empire. Although an unsuccessful politician, Andocides enjoyed a gift for vivid narrative and employed a simple and unembellished oratorical style. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This eBook presents Andocides’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
