      THANK YOU! I'd like to thank André Eupolemus from @[Cité Boomers] magazine (over 75 ooo readers!) for this beautiful appreciation of my novel EUPHORIA! I quote it: " The perfect novel for the month of the heart, it can read pretty quickly, we want to know.

      Introduction to Eupolemus: Eupolemus was a Jewish-hellenistic historian in the 2nd century BCE. and wrote work entitled On the Kings in only surviving fragments are from Alexander Polyhistor’s On the Jews, preserved by Clement of Alexandria (c.

This volume describes that part of the rich literary production of ancient Judaism which was not contained in the Hebrew Bible nor in rabbinic literature. These writings originated in the Second Temple period, which proved highly creative in the midst of strong external influences and internal example are the Dead Sea Scrolls, documents of an extremely separatist sect.

      Eupolemus (Greek: ʾΕνπόλεμος) is the earliest Hellenistic Jewish historian whose work survives only in five fragments (or possibly six fragments) in Eusebius of Caesarea's Praeparatio Evangelica (hereafter abbreviated as Praep.), embedded in quotations from the historian Alexander Polyhistor, and in the Stromata (hereafter abbreviated as Strom.   Cheating seems to have been rare at the ancient Olympics, which traditionally started in B.C. and were held every 4 years thereafter. It is assumed there were cheaters in addition to the known ones listed below, but the judges, Hellanodikai, were considered honest, and on the whole, so were the athletes—partly deterred by stiff fines and the possibility of flogging.
