The introduction sets out the methodological issues that confront the study of fragments and testimonia pertaining to Republican oratory. It goes on to provide an overview of the early history of the transmission and reception of this evidence, with a particular focus on the way subsequent traditions may distort our understanding of the evidence. Following these surveys, an overview of the contents of the whole volume is provided. Within this overview, attention is also drawn to the thematic links that can be drawn between the individual chapters and the questions raised in each of the four sections of the collection.

Keywords:   methodology, fragments, testimonia, transmission, reception, Roman oratory
