Diógenes of Oinoanda, Epicurus, Epicureanism, Archeology, Greek Philosophy

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


The purpose of this communication is to make a brief history of the discovery process, study and theoretical review of an archaeological source for Epicureanism, a study that had begun more than a century ago and continues to unfold and that is perhaps the largest source of its kind in the classical world: the Stoa of Diogenes Oinoanda. Being an epigraphical inscription whose initial field of study is Archeology has, nevertheless, an important philological and philosophical reflection as it complements the collection of Epicurean sources. It is thus an example of how the problem of sources at the intersection between the material aspects and their relevance as text, can, in relation to classical philosophy, be a field where interdisciplinary studies can combat the lacunar effect that is the inevitable condition of the vast lapses of elapsed time that sometimes makes classical philosophy a distressingly fragmented thinking.
