Summary/Abstract: This publication consists of the first published Lithuanian translation of Apuleius’s De deo Socratis, accompanied with a comprehensive commentary. Apuleius’s De deo Socratis examines the subject of daemons, which was very popular in the thought of Middle Platonism.

Apuleius emphasizes the cosmological and theological aspects of the theory of daemons and their importance for practical behavior.
