Plutarch and the Persica

The present chapter deals with sections of Plutarch's Artaxerxes which may be ascribed to Deinon with a certain degree of likelihood, although they are not explicitly attributed to him. In assigning these passages to Deinon, the chapter follows a cautious course, progressing from sections that are more probable to ones that are less so. The two sections of the Artaxerxes addressed here are (1) chapters 26-30, (2) chapters 24-25. It starts with a literary understanding of these sections, and then proceeds to assumptions concerning their original internal organisation based on Plutarch's passages and external material. Through a comparison to passages in Diodorus, Nepos and Trogus/Justin, it proposes a "common source" used by all authors as well as by Plutarch, which may be Deinon.
