Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Of these the most famous is Philostratus "the Athenian". Very little is known of his career. Even his name is doubtful. The Lives of the Sophists gives the praenomen Flavius, which, however, is found elsewhere only in Tzetzes. Eunapius and Synesius call him a Lemnian; Photius a Tyrian; his letters refer to him as an Athenian. It is probable that he was born in Lemnos, studied and taught at Athens, and then settled in Rome (where he would naturally be called Atheniensis) as a member of the learned circle with which empress Julia Domna surrounded herself. He was born probably around 172, and is said by the Suda to have been living in the reign of emperor Philip the Arab (244 - 249). His death possibly occurred in Tyre circa 250 AD. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Kindle Edition
This review is as much to do with the Kindle version as with marvellous Apollonius as other customers might like to know that THIS (cheaper) version has active TOC and is generally better presented than the other version on offer of the Conybeare translation.
The info about it on Kindle Store looks odd, as it mentions the Loeb version. But this isn't the Loeb (oh that it were, for $6.89!) - the info is simply copied from the book's preface.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent story, but this particular book ("a pukka classic from [...] is full of typographical errors. Clearly it was not edited before it was published, only spell-checked. The language is slightly archaic, and reading it is made more difficult due to the typographical errors and misplaced words, etc. This is unfortunate, because the story being told is excellent. I recommend finding a better published version of this book.

It is a excellnat read, for what I saw, but once I saw he wrote it on hire for a noble and she praised the man as a demigod, well, his writing had to please her so for sure his journalism was proababl deepl prejudiced and I, that is not wht i seek in m reading, but that is a personal goal that is mine and no relflection on the book, as, I read for the purpose sepcifically of an accurate depiction of the times and histor and its a secondary work rather than an primary, primary being a autobiogrpghy or a man who talked with him or traveeld with him and recorded his story directly.
So, probably m score is prejudiced and if you have the same goal as mine, then eh, I still may be wrng, I ade the choice and nvr finsihed after page 80 or so, as the made it to India.
Well written and it did supply vital informtion on routes of travel of the times, as, Sria was a great power and one of the oldest, and I had not realized she was so close to the Tigress, and fr that it was worth the reading i did do.
