In the framework of his universal history, it was not possible to look closely at the internal political conflicts of any Greek polis.

OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 16/4/2013, SPi 2 Dionysius and Isaeus Michael J. Edwards It may seem strange at first sight that an essay on Dionysius and Isaeus be included in a volume devoted to Hellenistic oratory, when neither of these authors was writing in the Hellenistic period. The earliest speech of Isaeus is probably the Dicaeogenes (speech 5), which dates to 389 bc and so suggests a date of birth after about 420 bc. The latest speech seems to be the fragment of the Euphiletus preserved by Dionysius of Halicarnassus, which may date to 344/3 bc.

59 Just as in a diplomatic speech, the paradeigmata (examples) repeatedly evoked and commented on by Polybius aim to persuade the Roman governing class, the hegoumenoi Rhomaioi, to choose epieikeia instead of pikria (‘bitterness’). The historian assumes the point of view of the hegemonic power and affirms this to be the policy most useful to their dominion’s stability; but of course, this was also the policy most favourable to the subject peoples; and this is what really matters to the Greek Polybius.
