Aristophanes and Athens : an introduction to the plays by Douglas M MacDowell( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an accessible introduction to each of Aristophanes' plays, focusing particularly on their relationship to Athenian politics and life, and to the effect that Aristophanes hoped to have on his audience. All passages quoted from them are given in new verse translations, and readers do not need any knowledge of Greek. But scholarly problems are not ignored, and specialists will find here both new suggestions and summaries of different interpretations with recent bibliographical information in the notes."--Jacket

On the false embassy (oration 19) by Demosthenes( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 346 BC the Athenians negotiated a peace-treaty with King Philip II of Macedon, but afterwards one of the Athenian ambassadors, Demosthenes, accused another, Aiskhines, of accepting a bribe from Philip to contrive that the terms of the treaty should be favourable to him. The case came to trial three years later, and On the False Embassy is the speech which Demosthenes prepared for the prosecution. It is one of the most famous pieces of ancient oratory, and it is also one of the principal sources of information about the politics of this period."
