The Phoenician history of Philo of Byblos: A commentary

Albert I. Baumgarten

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


My acquaintance with Philo of Byblos goes back many years. What was first proposed as an M.A. topic became a doctoral thesis, and now this book. Over these years, I have been helped by family, teachers, friends and institutions whose assistance it is a pleasure to acknowledge. First comes my family who have encouraged me to pursue an academic career. A life of teaching and research makes special demands. My wife and children have always been helpful and supportive, for which I am grateful. The members of tile doctoral supervisory committee at Columbia University contributed significantly to my education and to the original thesis. lowe a special debt of gratitude to my former supervisor, Professor Morton Smith. Many of his oral suggestions have been incorporated in the text and notes of my commentary.
