Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a general remark for commentary on the individual chapters. Since E. Rohde, Der griechische Roman und seine Vorläufer, Leipzig 1914 (repr. 1974), p.447, many scholars have doubted the authenticity of these opening chapters and the chapters which mention King Antiochus: in their view, this figure and the chapters in question have only been added to motivate and justify Apollonius' travels, cf. ed. m. (2004), n.43. These objections of Rohde and others will have to be included in the debate. The changes of RB play only a subordinate role here. This analysis of the first chapter clearly shows that the exordium of the Historia Apollonii (HA) not only corresponds closely to the Greek novel, but can also lay claim to a certain degree of authenticity, densely interwoven with the rest of the HA.

Keywords: E. Rohde; Historia Apollonii (HA); King Antiochus; King Apollonius
