The first draft of the English translation of Origen’s 12th Homily on Ezekiel has arrived! I hope to read through it later today.
I’ve been reading F.A.Paley’s collection of Greek witticisms, Greek Wit. This was in two volumes, which later editions bound together, as the copy I have seems to be. My first attempt to obtain this, from Amazon, brought me a slim but expensive reprint which only contained the second part.
What strikes me is the wit in Lucian’s life of Demonax. I have never read most of Lucian, and I don’t even know if his works are mainly online. The other source was the Byzantine florilegist Stobaeus, about which I know little. Hmm…. more to read!
