    The 'Theban Eagle'.Richard Stoneman - 1976 - Classical Quarterly 26 (02):188-.
    The eagle has always been recognized as one of Pindar's most potent and characteristic images. Horace borrowed it to construct the first four stanzas of his Pindaric imitation in Carm. 4.4, and he presents both himself and Pindar as soaring birds: see Carm. 4.2.25 and 2.20, where the swan outflies Daedalus and Icarus in a way that the imitators of Pindar cannot hope to do. It is standard doctrine that Pindar often describes himself as an eagle, and that Bacchylides ‘imitates’ (...)

    Naked Philosophers: The Brahmans in the Alexander Historians and the Alexander Romance.Richard Stoneman - 1995 - Journal of Hellenic Studies 115:99-114.
    The encounter of Alexander the Great with the Indian Brahmans or Oxydorkai/Oxydracae forms an important episode of the Alexander Romance as well as featuring in all the extant Alexander historians. The purpose of this paper is to consider how far the various accounts reflect genuine knowledge of India in the sources in which they are based, and to what extent the episode in the Alexander Romance diverges or adds to them and to what purpose. A future paper will consider the (...)

    The Ideal Courtier: Pindar and Hieron inPythian2.Richard Stoneman - 1984 - Classical Quarterly 34 (1):43-49.
    There is some audacity in adding to the formidable list of articles onPythian2, which raise the questions of the structure or thematic coherence of the ode, of its specific occasion and of its relation to Pindar's biography. In this paper my aim is the circumscribed one of showing how a correct analysis of the final section of the poem can lead us to a better understanding of the nature of Pindar's poetry, and of the way in which he adapts his (...)

    Who Are the Brahmans? Indian Lore and Cynic Doctrine in Palladius' De Bragmanibus and its Models.Richard Stoneman - 1994 - Classical Quarterly 44 (02):500-.
    I have devoted a separate study to the question of how far the account in the Alexander Romance of Alexander's meeting with the Naked Philosophers, later known as Brahmans, rests on genuine information about India. My conclusion was that the author of the Romance knew the Alexander historians but did not add any genuine knowledge; and that he incorporated a separate text of Cynic origin, the series of ten questions and answers.
