Abstract [en]

The question to which type of honey an ancient author refers can be significant but oftentimes receives no attention in secondary literature.  This article studies ancient perspectives on apiculture and various kinds of ‘honey,’ in order to ascertain the referent and significance attached to the “wild honey” that John the Baptist is said to eat in the New Testament Gospels of Mark and Matthew.
