INDEX OF NAMES

b OTHER PERSONS

This selective index provides basic identifications, pertinent above all to this edition, for a number of potentially unfamiliar names that are mentioned in the entries, especially those comprised in our sections P and R. We have added certain authors and historical personalities because of their significance in chronological or other regards. We have also included a certain number of authors who cite the passages we present. The other proper names, be they celebrated or obscure, can easily be identified on the basis of the context or with the help of standard dictionaries and encyclopedias. We have excluded gods, heroes, and other mythological figures.

  • Aelian (Claudius Aelianus): a Roman citizen who wrote scholarly compilatory works in Greek, end of the 2nd to the beginning of the 3rd century AD; he is included by Philostratus in his Lives of the Sophists.
