    Abstract:
    This volume was inspired by a colloquium on Plutarch’s Table Talk (or Quaestiones convivales, QC), but the editors seek to do more than present a simple miscellany of conference papers. The eight essays, along with the brief introductory and concluding essays by the editors, are intended ‘to mark a new departure’ for interpreting the QC and to ‘pursue a contextualized study of the work’ in a systematic way.
