Qui a lu l'Athénaiôn Politeia? La réception du pamphlet dans l'antiquité.

Abstract : It is non easy to evaluate the reception of Pseudo-Xenophon’s Athenaion Politeia in Antiquity because clues are as tenuous as they are few and are at best three centuries away from the time when this text was produced. Does such a silence means that this writing has remained ignored for a long time or is it the result of its anonymous transmission inside restricted circles? To measure the knowledge that contemporaries or intellectuals of the following generations could have of this text, one can only seek in their works echoes of the themes and lexicon used by Pseudo-Xenophon. The first part of this paper deals with the methodological problems raised by such an inquiry. In the second part, the analysis focuses more precisely on Isocrates, Plato and Aristotle as possible readers of the Athenaion Politeia.
