Against  Apion

This 2 volume sequel to Josephus' Jewish Antiquities was originally entitled: On the Jewish Antiquities. Since the work is a rebuttal to Roman critics of Josephus' Antiquities, later scholars gave it its current polemical title. This eloquent example of Greek dialectical argument is not just a refutation of the slander of one man, however. It is a refutation of anti-Semitism in a wide variety of ancient cultures. It was published sometime after the Jewish Antiquities (93/94 CE).
