A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

Plutarch's style is heavy and dull. Dion is fresh, vigorous,and pleasant to read. The two taken together would be almost complete sources for an historical novel of the period. Plutarch reveals the life and ideals of the educated man in European Greece. Dion takes us into the crowded streets, and gives an unsurpassed picture of the political and social life of the Greek communities in the Roman Empire. My extracts show this life on the edge of civilization where barbarism threatens to submerge it, in the country-side, in a provincial town, in a great commercial city, and in a famous centre of religion.
The following passage from an essay of the Wandeyjahye takes us to a Greek settlement in southern Russia, and gives a glimpse of a Cynic's sermon, and of life and thought in a tiny outpost of civilization.

I HAPPENED one summer to visit Borysthenes,I arriving by sea after my exile, and wishing if possible to go through Scythia to reach the Getae and study their life. One forenoon I walked by the banks of the Hypanis, on which the old and the new town are built, a little way above Cape Hippolaus on the opposite shore. This is a sharp and rocky tongue of land like a ship's prow, where the rivers meet. From the Cape to the sea they form a lake of about eleven miles long, as broad as the rivers. Most of it is calm and shallow in fine weather, like the stagnant waters of a lagoon. The river is visible on its right and incoming vessels judge the depth from the current, the strength of which carries the river out of the lake : otherwise the strong south winds that blow at its mouth would have easily barred its progress. The rest of the shore is marshy, thick with reed-beds and woods. A number of trees can be seen in the middle of the lake, and some foreign vessels have missed their course through approaching these in the belief that they were masts.
Owing to frequent wars and captures the size of Borysthenes is far below its ancient reputation. Situated in a foreign land,
