About This Item

1554 GREEK Demosthenes & Aeschines Orations Speeches Politics Greece Latin

Demosthenes's orations are considered some of the most significant and important speeches on the politics of ancient Greek culture and Greek law. He spoke out about the use of the Greek navy, the importance of freedom, Athenian law, and the governing of the people. This rare, mid-16th-century printing of 'Orationum' was published by John Oporinus and edited by Hieronymus Wolf who included the speeches of Aeschines and his attacks on Demosthenes.
