Herodes was a distinguished Roman senator from Greece, and also had the reputation of being the greatest sophist of the age. While he wasn’t always the most popular person in his home province, he did do a lot to elevate the culture and standing of Athens in the Roman Empire.

Guest: Dr Estelle Strazdins, (Research Fellow, Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens).
