Description

Debra Hamel’s Killing Eratosthenes tells the true story of a murder trial that took place two and a half millennia ago in ancient Athens. Euphiletus, the defendant, freely admitted to killing Eratosthenes, whom he'd found in bed with his wife. But he argued that his execution of the young man was legally justified. Killing Eratosthenes talks readers through Euphiletus' version of events—from the early days of his marriage to the night he killed his wife's lover—providing relevant background along the way. The book is intended for a general audience. No prior knowledge of the period is required. NOTE: This is a chapter-length work of nonfiction.
