"My focus will be on questions of rhetoric: why does the speaker focus specifically on females when discussing an orphaned family, and what is so transgressive about bringing up an orphaned Athenian on the island of Lemnos?"A text and translation will be provided as a handout, but those interested in looking at the Timandros speech in advance will find it edited by Tchernetska et al. in Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik, 162 (2007), pp.1-4.
