Aphthonius of Antioch was a classical Greek rhetorician who is primarily remembered today for his sophist literary movement of ‘Atticism’. Aphthonius wrote a book called ‘Progymnasmata’ which described and defended Atticism, or the ancient Greek literary style, as opposed to the more ‘modern’ approaches to Greek of Plutarch and Josephus.

 

This incredibly rare 1517 Rome edition was published by Jacob Mazzocchi and edited by Johannes Maria Catanaeus – an edition that is only found in four institutions worldwide! A highly desirable post-incunable printing!
