Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of Greek terms that occur in the book titled Diodorus’ Mythistory and the Pagan Mission. Concentrating on Diodorus' first five books, this book aims to uncover their contribution both to the study of Diodorus and to the knowledge of the Hellenistic era. The book explains that the mythological section of the Bibliotheke is not only an essential part of Diodorus' universal history, as he himself considered it to be, but also elucidates historical and geographical aspects of the Hellenistic period. Furthermore, one of the conspicuous features of these books is the recurrence of journeys made throughout the inhabited world by gods and culture-heroes.

Keywords:Bibliotheke; culture-hero; Diodorus’ mythistory; Hellenistic period
