n Acta Classica : Proceedings of the Classical Association of South Africa - Corruption and the corruptibility of in Greek historiography

This is currently unavailable for purchase.



This article is concerned with the themes of integrity and corruption in Greek historiography, but I start with a turn to the context in which it was first delivered - the University of South Africa's annual Classics Colloquium in 2010, on the theme of 'Integrity & Corruption in Antiquity'. To address the corruptibility of history in ancient Greece in the context of South Africa, a country that is beset with high levels of political corruption, is to raise deeper questions about the relationship between the historical account that we give of the ancient world and the corruption of power in the modern world.
