Abstract

This research critically examines In Flaccus, a text from the ancient author Philo. The research takes into account the perspectives of several scholars, especially Erich S. Gruen, an American classicist and authority on the subject. The purpose of the research is to reexamine the causes of and motives for the outbreak of the Alexandrian riots in 38CE that left a significant portion of the city's Jewish population dead or confined to a ghetto.
