Artemidorus and Edited by Peter Thonemann Martin Hammond

  • The only dream-book which has been preserved from classical antiquity
  • Provides an engaging introduction to the history of dreams and dream-interpretation in Greco-Roman antiquity
  • Explanatory Notes elucidate meaning, allusions, and Artemidorus' arguments
  • In the post-Freudian age we once again see dreams as potentially significant, but now as revelations of the psyche rather than the future: for the ancients, and Artemidorus, their presumed significance was mainly predictive, and sometimes prescriptive
