Reading at Random in Classical Literature

Lucian, Lover of Lies 26

with one comment

A slightly spooky one for Halloween. The speaker is a doctor by the name of Antigonus.

ἐγὼ γὰρ οἶδά τινα μετὰ εἰκοστὴν ἡμέραν ἧς ἐτάφη ἀναστάντα, θεραπεύσας καὶ πρὸ τοῦ θανάτου καὶ ἐπεὶ ἀνέστη τὸν ἄνθρωπον.

I know of a man who came to life twenty days after he was buried; I was his doctor both before his death and after he came back to life.
