This volume offers a new translation and full commentary on Plutarch's essay Precepts of Statecraft (Praecepta gerendae rei publicae), written as a letter to a young Greek in Sardeis (Asia Minor), willing to embark on a career as a politician in his Roman-ruled native state. The accompanying essays elucidate the general contemporary situation in the Roman provinces of Achaea and Asia – especially by taking a close look at the epigraphical evidence – and the literary qualities of Plutarch's treatise.
