Philosophical conference in Athens

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)


In 94 BCE, Gellius Publicola – consul for 72 BCE stayed in Athens for business matters. There he was to propose to the representatives of various philosophical schools a conference during which they would, with his help, settle their disputes once and for all and be able to deal with more important matters. As you can easily guess, this proposal was not enthusiastically received.
