(= Athenaeus' Table Talks & Commentary).
The Deipnosophistae is the Latin title of an early 3rd century AD Greek work, Deipnosophistaí, lit. The Dinner Experts by the Greco-Egyptian author Athenaeus of Naucratis. It is a long work of literary, historical, and antiquarian references set in Rome at a series of banquets held by the protagonist Publius Livius Larensis for an assembly of grammarians, lexicographers, jurists, musicians, and hangers-on. It is sometimes called the oldest surviving cookbook. Athenaeus of Naucratis was a Greek rhetorician and grammarian, flourishing about the end of the 2nd and beginning of the 3rd century AD.

Leather binding. Generally good edition of the set of fourteen volumes.
