Personal profile

Daniel W. Leon (B.A. Macalester College, M.A. University of Michigan, Ph.D. University of Virginia) is an Assistant Professor of Classics. His main area of research is Greek and Roman historical narrative, particularly as it reflects intercultural relations and the political uses of the past. Additional interests include the history of Roman Egypt, epigraphy, and papyrology. He is currently finishing a book about Arrian of Nicomedia's history of Alexander the Great and its relationship to the intellectual culture of the Roman Empire. A second book will focus on the reign of Philip Arrhidaeus and explore the symbolic significance of this understudied Macedonian king both throughout antiquity and in the context of modern Greek nationalism.
