Editorial Reviews


The re-evaluation of Athenaeus continues. This is the very welcome first volume of a new Loeb edition of the Deipnosophistae intended to replace the set of volumes edited by Charles Gulick (1927-41). (J. L. Lightfoot Exemplaria Classica 2007-12-01)

Essential for food historians. Excellent Value. (AKD Petits Propos Culinaires 2007-12-01)

One of the main advantages of Olson's new edition is that it is reader-friendly. When The Learned Banqueters quotes from a known author, Olson follows the text of, and gives the reference to, the best modern edition, making it easy for the reader to look up the citation in its original context...Olson's translation is largely excellent, and captures the spirit of the different authors quoted. (Helen Morales Times Literary Supplement 2012-08-04)
