(p.229) 6. Heracleides
Plutarch and the Persica

Eran Almagor

Edinburgh University Press

A great unknown is Heracleides of Cyme, the third Persica author who appears in Plutarch's corpus. The chapter begins with a literary interpretation of the references to Heracleides in Plutarch's works, proceeds to what we know of his Persica, and on the basis of what we can conjecture about Heracleides' work, it attempts to arrive at Plutarch's work method concerning this author. A discussion addresses a passage in Athenaeus' work, which deals with Timagoras. An excursus is included concerning Charon of Lampsacus and Plutarch's potential use of his lost Persica.

Keywords:   Artaxerxes, Athenaeus, Charon of Lampsacus, Heracleides, Phaenias of Eresus, Plutarch, Timagoras
