Бубнов Д. В. Происхождение данных «Исторической библиотеки» Диодора Сици-лийского о «совете друзей» Дионисия Старшего (404 г. до н. э.).
The author examines sources of Diodorus’ double narrative about the «Council of Friends», which took place in 404 BC, in two different books of his «Library». Scholars mostly hold to the opinion that two versions of the story in book XIV and book XX are derived from Timaeus and Philistus accordingly. However, some details of the text in XX, 78 make attribution of its data to Philistus doubtful. It seems more likely that Diodorus used the work of Philistus in XIV, 8 directly, but his evidence in XX, 78 is of rather complicated origin and possibly goes back to the rhetorical tradition of Isocrates.
