Artemidorus Artemidorus Daldianus () or Ephesius was a professional diviner who lived in the 2nd century CE. He is known from an extant five-volume Greek work, the "Oneirocritica" or "Oneirokritikon" ().
Artemidorus 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:
Artemidorus 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.
Artemidorus 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).
Artemidorus 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 AD.
Artemidorus There follows a lengthy and minute recitation of the divinatory significance of enjoying one's mother in various sexual positions.
Artemidorus According to the "Suda" (Alpha 4025), Artemidorus also penned a "Oiônoscopica" (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.
Artemidorus Ephesius Artemidorus of Ephesus (; ) was a Greek geographer, who flourished around 100 BC. His work in eleven books is often quoted by Strabo, but only fragments of the work exist.
Artemidorus Ephesius This long papyrus roll was written in the first century BC, maybe in Alexandria. The copyist left spaces for illustrations of maps, and then sent it to a painter's workshop to have them inserted. But the painter designed only a partial map, which appears to be what the author believed was the shape of the southwestern Iberian peninsula.
Artemidorus Ephesius A papyrus containing a fragment already known as part of book 2 of his work has recently been discovered. It is known as the "Artemidorus papyrus"; it also contains the first map of the Iberian peninsula, and many illustrations.
