This chapter examines the tendency among Greek and Roman paradoxographers to discuss insanity as part of an everyday, urban experience. By displacing madness from its typically wild and isolated setting, and by introducing it within the realm of everyday urban experience, paradoxography can thus be seen to transform the city into a potential landscape of dread. The fears, delusions and anxieties that torment the affected individual cease to be felt internally and in isolation and become part of a shared experience that haunts the community as a whole.
