Abstract

In this article I have tried to show that both Strabo's text (16.2.34-46) and Diodorus' text (34-35.1.1-5) about the Jews can be attributed to Posidonius of Apamea and that they do not contradict each other; nor do they contradict Josephus' testimony in the Against Apion (2.79), where it is very difficult anyway to determine what exactly goes back to Posidonius. His vision of the Jews can be summarized as follows: although he considered Moses as a wise and pious man who founded an admirable political and religious community, for political and philosophical reasons Posidonius greatly despised and disliked the Judaism of his time, which he regarded as a degenerate version of the Mosaic project.
