from antiquity that instructs its readers in the art of using dreams to predict the future. In it, Artemidorus discusses the nature of dreams and how to interpret them, and provides an encyclopaedic catalogue of interpretations of dreams relating to the natural, human, and divine worlds.
In this volume, Harris-McCoy offers a revised Greek text of the Oneirocritica with facing English translation, a detailed introduction, and scholarly commentary. Seeking to demonstrate the richness and intelligence of this understudied text, he gives particular emphasis to the Oneirocritica's
composition and construction, and its aesthetic, intellectual, and political foundations and context.
Daniel Harris-McCoy is currently a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Classical Studies at Boston College. His research generally relates to Greek and Latin history of ideas. In addition to dreams, he is interested in how knowledge was transmitted in antiquity and the intellectual,
aesthetic, and political dimensions of ancient technical and compilatory literature.
