Claudius Aelianus (c. AD 175- c. 235), a Roman of Prenestewh ochose to write in the archaizing Greek of the autors of the Second Sophistic, earned the epithet "honey tongue" because of the sweetness of his style. "Varia Historia", originally written in Greek in the 3rd century AD, contains a miscellany of anecdotes, lists, apophthegms, biographical sketches and descriptions of natural wonders. The volume presents Aelian in such a way that his programme for selection and compilation of information becomes apprent. Considering the range of data, and the voices in which he writes, Aelian's moral focus becomes clear, as does his agenda.
