This collection of articles stems from the Unisa Classics Colloquium of October 2010, which dealt with the theme 'Integrity and Corruption in Antiquity'. The topic itself arose from a concern, worldwide and also in South Africa, about the infiltration into the fabric of current society of rampant corruption in all its various and destructive manifestations. The conference did not aim at offering the consolation that corruption has been present throughout the centuries. Rather, participants wished to contribute to a better understanding of the phenomenon by holding up the mirror of antiquity and perhaps see reflected aspects that would otherwise have remained understated.
