Artemidoros of Daldis (ca. 135-ca. 200) was a Greek dream interpreter who lived in the second century AD.
He was born in the wealthy city of Efeze in a period with a lot of travel due to the Pax Romana. Based on the many quotes of poets in his book, it can be assumed that he was a schooled man. His travels and library indicate that he also was a wealthy man.
As his mother was born in Daldis, the dream interpreter referred to himself as ‘from Daldis’. As a dream interpreter he is renowned for his Oneirocritica. According to himself, he started with the ‘Book of Dreams’ at the request of the god Apollo of Daldis.
There were more of these texts around and Artemidoros mentions that he didn’t just witness dream interpreters at work, though that he also had read the works of his predecessors and had these in his possession.
