dc.description.abstract"This is a rich collection of twenty-seven essays to mark the memory of Ioannis Taifacos. For two decades (1993- 2013) Ioannis Taifacos worked hard to establish the Department of Classics and Philosophy as an autonomous administrative unit at the newly-founded University of Cyprus and to integrate it into the wider academic community. All the essays are original, and are written by an international group of established scholars. The eleven papers of Part I deal with Greek and Latin literature: epic poetry, Polybius, Lucian, Tatian, Gregory of Nazianzus, the reception of Greek epigram in nineteenth- century Greeceen

Part II features five papers on Greek and Latin scholarship, and three on papyrological, rhetorical and linguistic topics: Valerius Probus, Priscian, John of Alexandria (Aelius Herodian), the Greek Etymologica, 'prototypon/absolutum' in Latin grammatical terminologyen
