The Athenian statesman Demosthenes is now recognised as the greatest of the Greek orators, who roused Athens to oppose Philip and the might of Macedonia. Demosthenes’ speeches offer valuable information on the political, social and economic life of ancient Athens, providing a masterful demonstration of oratorical grace. The Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts.  This comprehensive eBook presents Demosthenes’ complete extant works, with beautiful illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
