Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names of modern scholars relevant to discussion of increasing recognition of Philodemus' importance for understanding the intellectual, cultural, social, and theological world. The papyri contain not only the works of Philodemus but also those of other Epicurean philosophers, including Epicurus and his close friend Metrodorus of Lampsacus as well as other Epicureans from later periods, including Colotes of Lampsacus, Carneiscus, Polystratus, Demetrius of Laconia, Lucretius, and perhaps even Lucius Manlius Torquatus, the spokesman for Epicureanism.

Keywords: Epicurean philosophers; papyri; Philodemus
