The present volume contains the first scholarly edition of Karl Philipp Moritz magnum opus on classical studies Anthousa or the Treasures of Roman Antiquity (1791), complete with a detailed commentary. The commentary examines the work in the context of the historical discipline of antiquitates and provides a careful analysis of the wide range of sources Moritz drew upon. In so doing it focuses attention on the author, in a hitherto unprecedented way, as an agent of literary transmission and an inheritor of the occidental tradition.
