Review

"On doit montrer une grande reconnaissance à Reydam-Schils pour la publication de ce recueil riche en nouveautés sur Stobée et la tradition gnomologique." (T. Dorandi, dans: Sehepunkte, 12 (2012), Nr. 5, 15.05.12)

"Les 16 articles de ce volume forment une collection exceptionnelle dans le domaine des études de Jean Stobée, résultant de la première conférence internationale sur ce sujet." (Berenice Verhelst, dans: L'antiquité classique, vol. 81, 2012, p. 225)

« (…) il ne fait pas de doute que cette somme considérable représente une étape importante dans la progression des recherches sur Stobée. » (Pierre-Marie Morel, dans: Revue des Études Anciennes, Tome 116, 2014, N° 1, p. 303)
