Abstract In Zutot 6 (2009), Luuk Huitink and Jan Willem van Henten presented the journal’s readers with an effort to advance the discussion of Josephus’ ancient audiences, by challenging my interpretation of Josephus’ work, which has taken into account scholarship on book production in first-century Rome. Since they misreported my work, and ignored the only essay I have devoted to the subject, their essay misfired. I am grateful to the editors of Zutot for a chance to correct their misrepresentation.
