In the fifth book of his Rhetoric (pp.74-76 Watt), Antony of Tagrit (9th century?) cites two passages from the Syriac translation of a hitherto unidentified Greek work, which proves to be Heliodorus’ novel Aethiopics (or Charikleia, as Antony calls it; in most manuscripts, however, the correct reading has been corrupted). The content of these two passages (Aeth. III 10,2 and 5), as well as some peculiar misinterpretations in their translation, could suggest a mediation through an intellectual milieu interested in Greek medicine and science.

Abstract

In the fifth book of his Rhetoric (pp.74-76 Watt), Antony of Tagrit (9th century?) cites two passages from the Syriac translation of a hitherto unidentified Greek work, which proves to be Heliodorus’ novel Aethiopics (or Charikleia, as Antony calls it; in most manuscripts, however, the correct reading has been corrupted). The content of these two passages (Aeth. III 10,2 and 5), as well as some peculiar misinterpretations in their translation, could suggest a mediation through an intellectual milieu interested in Greek medicine and science.
