This 2 volume sequel to Josephus'
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).
