    1. Artemidorus Artemidorus Johann Gottfried Reiff Nicolas Rigault

      Artemidorus was surnamed Ephesius, from Ephesus, on the west coast of Asia Minor, but was also called Daldianus, from his mother s native city, Daldis in Lycia He lived in the 2nd century.According to Artemidorus, the material for his work was gathered during lengthy travels through Greece, Italy and Asia, from diviners of high and low station Another major source were the writings of Artemidorus predecessors, sixteen of whom he cites by name It is clear he built on a rich written tradition, now otherwise lost Artemidorus method is, at root, analogical He writes that dream interpretation is nothing other than the juxtaposition of similarities 2.25 But like other types of Greek divination, including astrology, celestial divination and pallomancy, Greek dream divination Oneiromancy became exceedingly complex, a given dream subject to a number of interpretations depending on secondary considerations, such as the age, sex and status of the dreamer At other times, subtle distinctions within the dream itself are significant In a particularly memorable passage, Artemidorus expounds upon the meaning of dreams involving sex with one s mother The case of one s mother is both complex and manifold and admits of many different interpretations a thing not all dream interpreters have realized The fact is that the mere act of intercourse by itself is not enough to show what is portended Rather, the manner of the embraces and the various positions of the bodies indicate different outcomes Trans Robert J White There follows a lengthy and minute recitation of the divinatory significance of enjoying one s mother in various sexual positions.The first three books of the Oneirocritica are dedicated to one Cassius Maximus and were intended to serve as a detailed introduction for both diviners and the general public Books four and five were written for Artemidorus son, also Artemidorus, to give him a leg up on competitors, and Artemidorus cautions him about making copies.According to the Suda Alpha 4025 , Artemidorus also penned a Oi noscopica Interpretation of Birds and a Chiroscopica Palmistry , but neither has survived, and the authorship is discounted In the Oneirocritica Artemidorus displays a hostile attitude to palmistry.Among the authors Artemidorus cites are Antiphon possibly the same as Antiphon the Sophist , Aristander of Telmessus, Demetrius of Phalerum, Alexander of Myndus in Caria, and Artemon of Miletus The fragments of these authors, from Artemidorus and other sources, were collected by Del Corno in his Graecorum de re onirocritica scriptorum reliquiae 1969.
