Abstract

There has not been a serious scholarly commentary hitherto on Lucian’s fifteen Miniature Dialogues relating to sea-gods and water-nymphs in unusual exchanges of gossip and tittle-tattle. This first professional investigation sets the works in their literary and cultural context as Sophistic vignettes, and as significant examples of second-century Imperial reception and treatment of standard situations in classical mythology.
