A Tour in Lucian’s World

In this “tour” in Lucian’s text the author revives the atmosphere of the Greek satirist’s time, by focusing her attention to the mentality of ancient Greeks. By exploiting the second century B.C. text, she pictures the feelings of the mothers whose sons happened to have a certain relation with some hetaera; the public opinion about philosophers; the common customs and practices in the procedure of a symposium, as well as a number of other information, important for the representation of every-day life in Lucian’s Athens.
