C’est aussi un exemple de advisor interprétatif comme on en trouve dans de nombreuses civilisations et à maintes époques historiques, mais jamais à un tel degré d’élaboration ni avec une telle complexité d’analyse. Ce recueil rassemble six études portant sur Artémidore et son traité, ainsi que sur sa postérité. Il s’agit de situer l’auteur dans le paysage religieux de son temps et par rapport aux courants philosophiques qui dominent l. a. scène intellectuelle de son époque ; d’explorer les thèmes reflétant les préoccupations et les activités de ses contemporains (le théâtre, l’argent, los angeles mort) ; il s’agit enfin de présenter l’onirocritique byzantine qui se différencie de celle d’Artémidore tout en étant son héritière.
