[John Damascene]. BARLAAM AND IOASAPH. Translated by G. R. Woodward and Harold Mattingly One of the best known examples of the hagiographic novel, this is the tale of an Indian prince who becomes aware of the world's miseries, is converted to Christianity by the monk Barlaam, founds a Christian kingdom, and spends his later years as a hermit in the desert. Not until the mid-nineteenth century was it fully recognized that this Greek romance is actually the legend of the Buddha in a Christianized version. D. M. Lang's Introduction traces the parallels between the two stories, notes the influences of the Manichaean creed, and discusses the importance of Arabic versions of the legend. 1914/6th printing/676pp., /With an introduction by David M. Lang (1967) ( Volume 34 )   ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

[TM00001] Achilles Tatius. LEUCIPPE AND CLITOPHON. Translated by Stephen Gaselee Leucippe and Clitophon, written in the 2nd century A.D., is exceptional among the ancient romances in being a first-person narrative: the adventures of the young couple are recounted by the hero himself. The colourful story Clitophon tells us includes shipwrecks, apparent deaths, attacks by pirates and brigands, abductions, and other frights and obstacles. Love triumphs in the end. Achilles Tatius' style is notable for descriptive detail and for his engaging digressions. l917/revised 1969/5th printing/478pp., /index   - 99050 1   ( Volume 45)  ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

[TM00006] AMMIANUS MARCELLINUS. History. 3 Volumes.. ( Volumes 300, 315, 331) Ammianus was a Greek from Antioch. He served many years as an officer in the Roman army, in Gaul and in campaigns against the Persians, and then settled in Rome, where he wrote his history of the Roman Empire (Res gestae) in Latin--enlivening his Latin style with a touch of the Greek east. The portion of the history that survives covers in wonderful detail a period of 25 years in the historian's own lifetime: the reigns of Constantius, Julian (whom he greatly admired), Jovian, Valentinian I, and Valens. Ammianus' personal experience supplements the variety of reports and archives on which he draws. His is a dramatic narrative, the scene continually shifting from Gaul to Mesopotamia, from Milan to Constantinople. He gives us skillfully crafted portraits of personalities and vivid descriptions of military operations, with all the immediacy of an eyewitness account. VOLUME I.

Frazer Providing a grand summary of Greek myths and heroic legends, the Library is an essential account of what the Greeks believed about the origin and early history of the world and of the Hellenic people. This treasury of narratives about gods and heroes has been attributed to Apollodorus of Athens (born ca. 180 BC), but its author probably lived in the 1st or 2nd century of our era. In his highly regarded notes to the Loeb edition J. G. Frazer compares the various forms of these same stories found in different ancient authors. VOLUME I.

[TM00008] Apollonius Rhodius. ARGONAUTICA. Translated by R. C. Seaton Apollonius' epic in four Books recounts the legend of Jason's expedition on the Argo--the first ship to be built--into unknown territory to capture the prized Golden Fleece from King Aeetes of Colchis. The Argonauts, a band of fifty heroes (including Heracles at the outset, Orpheus, and Peleus), sail from Thessaly, across the Aegean and through the terrifying Clashing Rocks (Symplegades) into the Black Sea to distant Colchis, where--with the help of the King's daughter Medea and her magical gifts--Jason finally succeeds in his mission. The adventures of the homeward journey, by way of the Danube, Po, and Rhone Rivers and Libya, fill the final book. Love is a central theme in Apollonius' heroic tale: the poet tellingly depicts the flowering of Medea's violent passion for Jason. This Hellenistic epic saga reads like an heir to Homer and exerted a profound influence on Virgil's Aeneid as well as on the Latin and Greek romances of the coming centuries. 1912/9th printing/448pp., /index   - 99001 3 ( Volume 1     £16.95

He saw the Jewish rebellion of 116 CE, and later became a Roman citizen and advocate and received the rank of eques (knight). In his older years he held a procuratorship. He died during the reign of Antoninus Pius who was emperor 138-161 CE. Honest admirer of the Roman empire though ignorant of the institutions of the earlier Roman republic, he wrote, in the simple ’common’ dialect, 24 Books of ’Roman affairs’, in fact conquests, from the beginnings to the times of Trajan (emperor 98-117 CE). Eleven have come down to us complete, or nearly so, namely those on the Spanish, Hannibalic, Punic, Illyrian, Syrian, and Mithridatic wars, and five Books on the Civil Wars.

The hero, Lucius, eager to experience the sensations of a bird, resorts to witchcraft, but an unfortunate pharmaceutical error turns him into an ass. The bulk of the novel recounts his adventures as an animal. Lucius also retails many stories he overhears, the most charming being that of Cupid and Psyche; some are as ribald as they are witty.     £35.00

[SH0186] ARISTOPHANES. Translated by Jeffrey Henderson. 5 Volumes. ( series ) Aristophanes of Athens (ca. 446-386 B.C.) one of the world's greatest comic dramatists, has been admired since antiquity for his iridescent wit and beguiling fantasy, exuberant language, and brilliant satire of the social, intellectual, and political life of Athens at its height. He wrote at least forty plays, of which eleven have survived complete. In the first Volume of a new Loeb edition of Aristophanes, Jeffrey Henderson presents a freshly edited Greek text of two plays, a general introduction, and a lively, unexpurgated translation with full explanatory notes. VOLUME I. ACHARNIANS. KNIGHTS The general introduction that begins Volume I brings current scholarly insights to bear on the intriguing question of the comic poet as a political force. In Acharnians a small landowner, tired of the Peloponnesian War, magically arranges a personal peace treaty and demonstrates the injustice of war in a contest with the bellicose Acharnians. Also in this Volume is Knights, perhaps the most biting satire of a political figure. 1998/416pp.,index. VOLUME II. CLOUDS.WASPS.PEACE Translated Jeffrey Henderson In this second Volume of the new  edition of Aristophanes, Jeffrey Henderson presents a freshly edited Greek text of three plays and a lively, unexpurgated translation. Socrates' "Thinkery" is at the center of Clouds, which spoofs untraditional techniques for educating young men. Wasps satirizes Athenian enthusiasm for jury service and the law courts as well as the city's susceptibility to demagogues. In Peace, a rollicking attack on war-makers, the farmer hero makes his famous trip to heaven on a dung beetle to discuss the issues with Zeus. An introduction to each play and full explanatory notes serve as a steady guide to the playwright's topical allusions. 1998/624pp., /index. Volume III: Birds. Lysistrata.

The eleven plays by Aristophanes that have come down to us intact brilliantly illuminate the eventful period spanned by his forty-year career, beginning with the first production in 427 BCE. But the Athenians knew much more of his work: over forty plays by Aristophanes were read in antiquity, of which nearly a thousand fragments survive. These provide a fuller picture of the poet's ever astonishing comic vitality and a wealth of information and insights about his world. Jeffrey Henderson's new, widely acclaimed Loeb edition of Aristophanes is completed by this Volume containing what survives from, and about, his lost plays, hitherto inaccessible to the nonspecialist, and incorporating the enormous scholarly advances that have been achieved in recent years. new  ) Hardbacks in fine D/J's     £89.50

[TM0021] CATO AND VARRO. ON AGRICULTURE. Translated by W. D. Hooper and H. B. Ash A dominant political and military figure in Rome in the second century BC, Cato was also a notable historian and preeminent orator, a constant champion of traditional Roman virtues. Only fragments of orations and of his history remain. His sole surviving work, De Agricultura, is our earliest complete Latin prose text. Here he addresses the man with money to invest, strongly recommending farming for its security and profitability. He gives instructions and advice for efficient management of labor and resources. His down-to-earth style is enlivened by folk wisdom and rustic enthusiasms. Varro was considered the most learned Roman of his time. His Res rustica (37 BC), however, is not a practical treatise but attractive instruction about agricultural life meant for prosperous country gentlemen. Its dialogue form, with several participants, allows for good characterization, amusing stories, and striking observations. 1934/7th printing/570pp., /indexes   - 99313 6 ( Volume 283  ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

[TM0024] Chariton. CALLIRHOE. Edited and translated by G. P. Goold Chariton's Callirhoe, subtitled "Love Story in Syracuse," is the oldest extant novel. It is a fast-paced historial romance with ageless charm. Chariton narrates the adventures of an exceptionally beautiful young bride named Callirhoe, beginning with her abduction by pirates -- adventures that take her as far as the court of the Persian king Artaxerxes and involve shipwrecks, several ardent suitors, an unwanted pregnancy, the hazards of war, and a happy ending. Animated dialogue captures dramatic situations, and the novelist takes us on picturesque travels. His skill makes us enthralled spectators of plots and counterplots, at trials and a crucifixion, inside a harem, among the admiring crowd at weddings, and at battles on land and sea. This enchanting tale is here made available for the first time in an English translation facing the Greek text. In his Introduction G. P. Goold establishes the book's date in the first century A.D. and relates it to other ancient fiction. "The new Loeb edition of Chariton by professor George Goold provides the best available text of Chariton and a useful translation and introduction...At a time when interest in the ancient novel is growing rapidly a Loeb of Chariton is particularly welcome. The translation is literal enough not to confuse the reader who uses it as an aid to understanding the Greek; the format of the series often appeals to students and amateur classicists who use it in this way, so this clarity is a great merit...At the same time, the translation is smooth and readable...There is a good index to the translation and introduction, and allusions are generously referenced in footnotes." --John Birchall, Scholia Reviews 1995/438pp., /map/index isbn 0-674-99530-9 ( Volume 481  ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

Along the way Cicero has interesting things to say about the influence of the speaker's audience on his style and technique. Also notable here is an autobiographical sketch. Cicero's own very wide practical experience informs Orator, which depicts the ideal speaker. Here he details the principles of eloquent oratory and quotes instructive examples. Both works date from 46 BC and are dedicated to the author's promising young friend, Brutus, later famous in the conspiracy against Caesar. 1939/7th printing/548pp., /indexes 99377 2 (LCL Volume 342) B: ORATIONS 10 Volumes VOLUME VI.

Shackleton Bailey In letters to his dear friend Atticus, Cicero reveals himself as to no other of his correspondents except, perhaps, his brother. These letters, in this four-Volume series, also provide a vivid picture of a momentous period in Roman history--years marked by the rise of Julius Caesar and the downfall of the Republic. When the correspondence begins in November 68 b.c. the 38-year-old Cicero is a notable figure in Rome: a brilliant lawyer and orator, who has achieved primacy at the Roman bar and a political career that would culminate in the Consulship in 63. Over the next twenty-four years--to November 44, a year before he was put to death by the forces of Octavian and Mark Antony--Cicero wrote frequently to his friend and confidant, sharing news and discussing affairs of business and state. It is to this corpus of over 400 letters that we owe most of our information about Cicero's literary activity. And taken as a whole the letters provide a first-hand account of social and political life in Rome. D. R. Shackleton Bailey's authoritative edition and translation of the Letters to Atticus is now added to the  (replacing an outdated edition); it is a revised version of his Cambridge Classical Texts and Commentaries edition, and includes many explanatory notes.

[TM0027] Clement of Alexandria. THE EXHORTATION TO THE GREEKS;THE RICH MAN'S SALVATION; and a short fragment entitled TO THE NEWLY BAPTIZED. Translated by G. W. Butterworth A key figure in early Christianity and its reaction to Hellenic culture, Clement (born probably A.D. 150 in Athens) had a wide knowledge of Greek literature--as his frequent quotations of Homer, Hesiod, the playwrights, and Platonic and Stoic philosophers attest. His "Exhortation to the Greeks"--in which he calls on the Greeks to give up their gods and turn to Christ--shows familiarity with the mystery cults. Along with the "Exhortation" this Volume presents "The Rich Man's Salvation," a homily that offers a glimpse of Clement's public teaching. 1919/7th printing/432pp., /index   - 99103 6 ( Volume 92  ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

(s -  Volumes 361, 407 and 408 ) Columella's Res rustica is the fullest treatment of agriculture in Latin, and here we can learn a great deal about what life in the country was like in Italy in the first century AD. Columella discusses the layout and staffing of a farm and the duties of the overseer and his wife as well as the care of barnyard animals and cultivation of vegetables, fruit trees, and grapevines. Written in stylish prose, he draws on many previous Greek, Punic, and Latin writers, including Cato and Varro, but his personal experience is paramount.

AD 150 - 235, was born at Nicaea in Bithynia in Asia Minor. On the death of his father (Roman governor of Cilicia) he went in 180 to Rome, entered the Senate, and under the emperor Commodus was an advocate. He held high offices, becoming a close friend of several emperors. He was made governor of Pergamum and Smyrna; consul in 220; proconsul of Africa; governor of Dalmatia and then of Pannonia; and consul again in 229. Of the eighty Books of Dio's great work Roman History, covering the era from the legendary landing of Aeneas in Italy to the reign of Alexander Severus (AD 222 - 235), we possess Books 36 - 60 (36 and 55 - 60 have gaps), which cover the years 68 BC - AD 47. The missing portions are partly supplied, for the earlier gaps by Zonaras, who relies closely on Dio, and for some later gaps (Book 35 onwards) by John Xiphilinus (of the eleventh century). There are also many excerpts. The facilities for research afforded by Dio's official duties and his own industry make him a very vital source for Roman history of the last years of the republic and the first four emperors.     £158.00

He was himself imprisoned in Egypt, but became Bishop of Caesarea about 314. At the Council of Nicaea in 325 he sat by the emperor, led a party of moderates, and made the first draft of the famous creed. Of Eusebius's many learned publications we have Martyrs of Palestine and Life of Constantine; several apologetic and polemic works; parts of his commentaries on the Psalms and Isaiah; and the Chronographia, known chiefly in Armenian and Syriac versions of the original Greek. But Eusebius's chief fame rests on the History of the Christian Church in ten Books published in 324-325, the most important ecclesiastical history of ancient times, a great treasury of knowledge about the early Church.     £35.00

[TM0041-1] Gellius. ATTIC NIGHTS. 3 Volumes. ( Volumes 195, 200 and 212 ) Translated by John C. Rolfe An engaging writer of the Antonine period, Aulus Gellius was a man of wide interests and great admiration for Greek culture. His Attic Nights is a collection of absorbing short chapters about notable events, words and questions of literary style, lives of historical figures, points of law, and philosophical issues that served as instructive light reading for the cultivated Roman. The workÕs title derives simply from the fact that Gellius began to write these pieces during stays in Athens. Variety adds to the charm of the miscellany: the author makes use of reminiscence as a literary form, dramatizations, character sketches, dialogues, extensive quotations from other writers (many from works now lost).

[TM0044-1] Greek Lyric.. 5 Volumes. Edited and translated by David A. Campbell. ( Volumes 142, 143, 144, 476, 461 ) The edition is remarkable for its comprehensiveness, good layout and printing, good textual judgment, and fluent, accurate translation. VOLUME I. SAPPHO AND ALCAEUS Here are the complete extant works of the two illustrious singers of sixth-century Lesbos: Sappho, the most famous woman poet of antiquity, whose main theme was love; and Alcaeus, poet of wine, war, and politics. Ancient reports about the lives and work of the two are presented along with all readable fragments. 1982/3rd printing/5l0pp., VOLUME II. ANACREON, ANACREONTEA, CHORAL LYRIC FROM OLYMPUS TO ALCMAN This Volume in David Campbell's highly praised edition of the Greek lyric poets contains the work of Anacreon, composer of solo song, as well as the Anacreonta (for which Campbell provides a very helpful in-depth introduction). Here, too, are the earliest writers of choral poetry, notably the seventh-century Spartans Alcman and Terpander. Ancient reports about the lives and work of these poets are represented along with all readable fragments. 1988/576pp., /index . VOLUME III. STESICHORUS, IBYCUS, SIMONIDES, AND OTHERS The most important poets writing in Greek in the 6th century B.C. came from Sicily and southern Italy. Stesichorus was called by ancient writers most Homeric--a recognition of his epic themes and noble style. Ibycus, too, wrote lyrical narratives on mythological themes, and composed erotic poems as well. Simonides was successful in various genres; his work includes victory odes, dirges, and dithyrambic poetry. All the extant verse of these poets is given here, along with the ancients' accounts of their lives and works. Also in this Volume are ten contemporary poets, including Arion, Lasus, and Pratinas. 1991/660pp., /index . VOLUME IV. BACCHYLIDES, CORINNA, AND OTHERS Bacchylides was a master of the captivating narrative and wrote choral poetry of many types. We have a number of his victory odes as well as dithyrambs and other hymns. Also represented in this Volume is the Boeotian Corinna, whose work, versions of local myths, survives in greater quantity than that of any other Greek woman poet except Sappho. Other women are here too: Myrtis, Telesilla of Argos, Charixena, and Praxilla of Sicyon. Also included are Timocreon of Rhodes, Diagoras of Melos, and Ion of Chios. 1992/428pp., /index . VOLUME V. THE NEW SCHOOL OF POETRY AND ANONYMOUS SONGS AND HYMNS Toward the end of the fifth century B.C. Aristophanes and others used contemporary poets as targets for jokes, making fun of their innovations in language and music. The dithyrambs of Melanippides, Cinesias, Phrynis, Timotheus, and Philoxenus are remarkable examples of this new style.The poets of the new school, active from the mid-5th to the mid-4th century, are presented in this final Volume of David Campbell's widely praised edition of Greek lyric poetry. This Volume also collects folk songs, drinking songs, and other anonymous pieces. The folk songs include children's ditties, marching songs, love songs, and snatches of cult poetry. The drinking songs are derived mainly from Athenaeus' collection of Attic scolia. 1993/492pp., /index . A definitive edition of Greek Lyric. New  ) Hardbacks in fine D/J's     £89.55

BOOKS V-VIII 1971/342pp., /index ( Volumes 454 and ) 455 new  ) Hardbacks in fine D/J. ? The History of Herodian (born ca. 178?179 CE) covers a period of the Roman empire from the death of the emperor Marcus Aurelius (180 CE) to the accession of Gordian III (238), half a century of turbulence, in which we can see the onset of the revolution which, in the words of Gibbon, "will ever be remembered, and is still felt by the nations of the earth." In these years, a succession of frontier crises and a disastrous lack of economic planning established a pattern of military coups and increasing cultural pluralism. Of this revolutionary epoch we know all too little. The selection of chance has destroyed all but a handful of the literary sources that deal with the immediate post- Antonine scene. Herodian's work is one of the few that have survived, and it has come down to us completely intact. Of the author we know virtually nothing, except that he served in some official capacity in the empire of which he wrote. His History was apparently produced for the benefit of people in the Greek-speaking half of the Roman empire. It betrays the faults of an age when truth was distorted by rhetoric and stereotypes were a substitute for sound reason. But it is an essential document for any who would try to understand the nature of the Roman empire in an era of rapidly changing social and political institutions.     £35.00

Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 B.C., learned medicine and philosophy and traveled widely as a medical doctor and teacher. Of the roughly 70 medical treatises collected under his name--the Hippocratic Collection--many are not by him; even the famous Hippocratic Oath (in Volume I of the Loeb edition) may not be his. But he was undeniably the "Father of Medicine." And the treatises in the Hippocratic Collection are essential sources of information about the practice of medicine in antiquity and about Greek theories concerning the human body. VOLUME I.

In the caseBooks and notes that make up the seven Books called Epidemics--the title originally meant "visits"--we can watch ancient physicians observing patients, noting and pondering symptoms, evaluating treatments, and developing theories about the body. They appear to be physicians' noteBooks from several areas of the Aegean basin. Praise for Volume VII: "Since Littré's edition..the texts of the Epidemics, with the exception of I, III and VI, had only appeared in an edition by Pournaropoulos, and this is the first complete English translation..It is thus of enormous value in making all the Books of the Epidemics available to those without a sufficient knowledge of Greek or French--or without access to the Littré edition. It is also a welcome further step towards a complete Loeb Hippocrates, and therefore towards a much-needed available and affordable edition of the Hippocratic Corpus." -- /430pp., /map/index.

[TM0049-2] Horace. ODES AND EPODES and indexes SATIRES, EPISTLES, ARS POETICA 2 Volumes. ( Volumes 33 and 194) Translated by C. E. Bennett Horace (b. 65 BC) claims the lyric poetry of Sappho and Alcaeus as models for his celebrated odes. His four Books cover a wide range of moods and topics: friendship is the dominant theme of about a third of the poems; a great many deal with love and amorous situations, often amusingly; others deal with patriotic and political themes. The seventeen epodes, which Horace called iambi, were also inspired by a Greek model: the seventh century iambic poetry of Archilochus. As in the odes, love and politics are frequent themes; some of the epodes also display mockery and ridicule, of a harsher variety than we find in Horace's satires. 1914/revised 1927, 1968/19th printing/ 460pp., /indexes. SATIRES, EPISTLES, ARS POETICA Translated by H. R. Fairclough In the style originated by Lucilius, Horace in his satires mocks himself as well as the world's vices and follies. The main purpose of the first book (published about 35 B.C.) is to entertain; attacks on moral and literary faults frequently are directed at specific individuals, but the poet's tone is rarely abusive. The poems in the second book make playful use of dramatic presentation and humorous situations. The verse epistles, addressed to real people, seem to reveal many aspects of the poet's opinions and way of life. This Volume also contains the Ars Poetica, a series of often memorably expressed maxims for the guidance of young poets, which famously set forth Horace's literary theory and critical judgments about theater as well as the poet's craft. 1926/13th printing/540pp., /indexes s -  ) Hardbacks in fine dust wrappers.     £35.00

[TM0052] JEROME. SELECT LETTERS. Translated by F. A. Wright The letters of Saint Jerome are an essential source for our knowledge of Christian life in the 4th-5th centuries; they also provide insight into one of the most striking and complex personalities of the time. Jerome's loving encouragement of his friends alternates with fierce invective against his enemies. His reaction to Alaric's sack of Rome shows ambiguity similar to his guilty feelings about continually quoting pagan classics. Seven of the eighteen letters in this selection deal with a primary interest of Jerome's: the morals and proper role of women. Three of these give elaborate portraits of women in marriage; two are concerned with the education of girls; one instructs a widow on maintaining her chastity. The most famous letter here fervently extols virginity. 1933/6th printing/536pp., /index   - 99288 1 ( Volume 262  ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

Orations i-v 1526pp., index; Volume II. orations vi-viii. letters to Themistius,to the senate and people of Athens, to a priest. the caesars. Misopogon. Julian's Misopogon (The Beard Hater) is a case of the satirist directing his sharp wit at himself: self-mockery employed to undercut the taunts of critics. When the citizens of Antioch jeered at the emperor's "philosophical" beard, he responded with a satire on his own appearance and austere life style. A work of ironic self-disparagement, Misopogon reflects strikingly on the emperor's personality. Julian's conception of the ideal ruler emerges through the satire of The Caesars. He begins with a reference to the Saturnalia, and his treatment of the gods here is appropriate to that festival. The piece contains some echoes of Lucian's satires-but Julian is nowhere as light-hearted as Lucian. 526pp., Volume III. Letters. epigrams. against the Galilaeans. fragments 1923, 518pp., Julian (Flavius Claudius Iulianus) "the Apostate", Roman Emperor, lived 331 or 332 to 363 CE. Born and educated in Constantinople as a Christian, after a precarious childhood he devoted himself to literature and philosophy and became a pagan, studying in various Greek cities. In 355 his cousin Emperor Constantius called him from Athens to the court at Milan, entitled him "Caesar", and made him governor of Gaul. Julian restored Gaul to prosperity and good government after the ravages of the Alamanni (he overthrew them at the battle of Strassburg in 357) and other Germans. Between 357 and 361 Julian's own For Saleiers, refusing to serve in the East at Constantius's orders, nearly involved Julian in war with Constantius-who however died in 361 so that Julian became sole Emperor of the Roman world. He began many reforms and proclaimed universal toleration in religion but pressed for the restoration of the older pagan worships. In 362-363 he prepared at Constantinople and then at Antioch for his expedition against Persia ruled by Shapur II. He died of a wound received in desperate battle. Julian's surviving works (lost are his Commentaries on his western campaigns), all in Greek, are given in the  in three Volumes. The eight Orations (1-5 in Volume I, 6-8 in Volume II) include two in praise of Constantius, one praising Constantius's wife Eusebia, and two theosophical hymns (in prose) or declamations, of interest for studies in neo-Platonism, Mithraism, and the cult of the Magna Mater in the Roman world. The satirical Caesars and Misopogon, Beard-hater, are also in Volume II. The Letters (more than eighty, Volume III) include edicts or rescripts, mostly about Christians, encyclical or pastoral letters to priests, and private letters. Lastly in Volume III are the fragments of the work Against the Galilaeans (the Christians), written mainly to show that evidence for the idea of Christianity is lacking in the Old Testament.

[TM0056] JUVENAL AND PERSIUS. Translated by G. G. Ramsay. Juvenal's is an indignant satire. He moves past the urbanities of irony to pour scorn on the world of Nero and Domitian. In powerful verse Juvenal mockingly entertains his audience with society's vices and castigates the corruption of traditional values. Rome, the fiery satirist wants to show, is sick. Paired with him in this Volume is the Neronian satirist Persius, who attacks not public ills but primarily Rome's degenerate literary tastes. The poet's interest in Stoicism is reflected in his focus on ethical ideals. There is comic intensity to Persius' style and also a nobility of spirit that gained him esteem among the Church Fathers. 1918/15th printing/498pp., /index   - 99102 8 ( Volume 91  ) Hardback in fine D/J     £16.95

Born in Antioch to a wealthy family steeped in the traditions of Hellenism, Libanius rose to fame as a teacher of the classics. In his lifetime, he was an acknowledged master of the art of letter writing, and today his letters offer a vivid picture of the culture and political intrigues of the eastern empire. A. F.

( Volumes 510, 511,512 ) bi-lingual Latin-English texts. 2011,464, 496,464pp., ** The Saturnalia, Macrobius's encyclopedic celebration of Roman culture written in the early fifth century CE, has been prized since the Renaissance as a treasure trove of otherwise unattested lore. Cast in the form of a dialogue, the Saturnalia treats subjects as diverse as the divinity of the Sun and the quirks of human digestion while showcasing Virgil as the master of all human knowledge from diction and rhetoric to philosophy and religion. The new Latin text is based on a refined understanding of the medieval tradition and improves on Willis's standard edition in nearly 300 places. The accompanying translation-only the second in English and the only one now in print-offers a clear and sprightly rendition of Macrobius's ornate Latin and is supplemented by ample annotation. A full introduction places the work in its cultural context and analyzes its construction, while indexes of names, subjects, and ancient works cited in both text and notes make the work more readily accessible than ever before. new set in fine d/j's  £49.50

[TM0071] NONNOS. DIONYSIACA. 3 Volumes Translated by W. H. D. Rouse with notes by H. J. Rose (on mythology) and by L. R. Lind (on text criticism) In the 5th century A.D., Nonnos of Panopolis in Egypt produced this epic recounting the earthly career of Dionysus from his birth at Thebes to his reception on Olympus. Nonnos tells of the god's role as a conqueror of the East, notably his invasion of India, and also describes his amorous adventures in a sensual and explicit style. The poem is full of mythological, magical, and astrological lore; and its portrayal of Dionysiac frenzy seems to reflect religious awe. VOLUME I.

Ovid tells men how to find a suitable mistress, how to win her and retain her affections; he goes on to instruct women on the art of captivating and retaining a lover. These lessons are cleverly reversed in "Remedies for Love," in which the poet gives directions for falling out of love.

[TM0076] PETRONIUS. Satyricon. Translated by M. Heseltine SENECA, APOCOLOCYNTOSIS Translated by W. H. D.

It has been called a kaleidoscope picture of literature, lust, and life. Perhaps best known are the chapters describing Trimalchio's wildly extravagant dinner party with rambunctious entertainment. For the revised edition, Warmington debowdlerized Heseltine's translation and expanded the explanatory notes.

[091016-1] PHILOSTRATUS. LIFE OF APOLLONIUS OF TYANA. and Eusebius: Treatise & Lives of the Sophists. Together 3 Volumes.. ( Volumes 16, 17, 134 ) Edited and Translated by Christopher P. Jones Volume I. Books 1-4; Volume II. Books 5-8. This biography of a first-century CE holy man has become one of the most widely discussed literary works of later antiquity. With an engaging style, Philostratus portrays a charismatic teacher and religious reformer from Tyana in Cappadocia (modern central Turkey) who travels across the known world, from the Atlantic to the Ganges. His miracles, which include extraordinary cures and mysterious disappearances, together with his apparent triumph over death, caused pagans to make Apollonius a rival to Jesus of Nazareth. In a new two-Volume  edition of Philostratus's third-century work, Christopher Jones provides a freshly edited Greek text and a stylish translation with full explanatory notes. Apollonius of Tyana is by far the longest biography that survives from antiquity. Jones in his Introduction asks how far it is history and how far fiction, and discusses its survival from Late Antiquity to modern times. A third Philostratus/ Apollonius Volume edited by Jones -- Letters of Apollonius. Ancient Testimonia. Eusebius's Reply to Hierocles is to be published in Spring 2006.

They are attributed to two men each known as Philostratus and to a third man called Callistratus, otherwise unknown. To an elder Philostratus, the Lemnian, born ca. 190 CE, junior kinsman of the Philostratus who wrote the Life of Apollonius of Tyana and Lives of the Sophists, is attributed the series of 65 ’Eikones’ or ’Imagines’, descriptions (in two Books) ostensibly of paintings in a gallery at Naples. A younger Philostratus, apparently his grandson, is credited with 17 similar descriptions. The 14 ’Ekphraseis’ attributed to Callistratus are descriptions of statues in stone or bronze, written probably in the fourth century CE. It is not known to what extent the descriptions are of real works of art, but they show how artists treated their subjects, and are written with some artistic knowledge. Yet rhetorical skill dominates: these pieces were written to display the writers’ powers of description.     £16.95

[TM0080] PINDAR. Edited and translated by William H. Race. Classical Antiquity Loeb. "This excellent Loeb edition of Pindar supersedes the antiquated Volume edited by Sandys in 1915. Its most notable feature is clarity: the Greek typeface is a pleasure to read; the translations are crisp and accurate...plentiful notes both explain Pindar's recherché allusions and bring out how more than one interpretation of the text is often possible...this edition will be of lasting value." --Stephen Instone, Classical Review William H. Race gives us, in two Volumes, a new edition and translation of Pindar's four Books of victory odes, along with surviving fragments of his other poems. Brief introductions to each ode and full explanatory footnotes afford invaluable guidance throughout. Like Simonides and Bacchylides, Pindar wrote elaborate odes in honor of prize-winning athletes. His 45 victory odes celebrate triumphs in athletic contests at the four great Panhellenic festivals: the Olympic, Pythian (at Delphi), Nemean, and Isthmian games. In these poems, Pindar commemorates the achievement of athletes and powerful rulers against the backdrop of divine favor, human failure, heroic legend, and the moral ideals of aristocratic Greek society.

[F2522] Plato. Timaeus. Critias. Cleitophon. Menexenus. Epistles. Volume 9 of the edition in 12 Volumes in a Bi-Lingual English-Latin Edition . Translated by R. G. Bury ( Volume 234) ¶ ** Plato, the great philosopher of Athens, was born in 427 BCE. In early manhood an admirer of Socrates, he later founded the famous school of philosophy in the grove Academus. Much else recorded of his life is uncertain; that he left Athens for a time after Socrates' execution is probable; that later he went to Cyrene, Egypt, and Sicily is possible; that he was wealthy is likely; that he was critical of 'advanced' democracy is obvious. He lived to be 80 years old. Linguistic tests including those of computer science still try to establish the order of his extant philosophical dialogues, written in splendid prose and revealing Socrates' mind fused with Plato's thought. In Laches, Charmides, and Lysis, Socrates and others discuss separate ethical conceptions. Protagoras, Ion, and Meno discuss whether righteousness can be taught. In Gorgias, Socrates is estranged from his city's thought, and his fate is impending. The Apology (not a dialogue), Crito, Euthyphro, and the unforgettable Phaedo relate the trial and death of Socrates and propound the immortality of the soul. In the famous Symposium and Phaedrus, written when Socrates was still alive, we find the origin and meaning of love. Cratylus discusses the nature of language. The great masterpiece in ten Books, the Republic, concerns righteousness (and involves education, equality of the sexes, the structure of society, and abolition of slavery). Of the six so-called dialectical dialogues Euthydemus deals with philosophy; metaphysical Parmenides is about general concepts and absolute being; Theaetetus reasons about the theory of knowledge. Of its sequels, Sophist deals with not-being; Politicus with good and bad statesmanship and governments; Philebus with what is good. The Timaeus seeks the origin of the visible universe out of abstract geometrical elements. The unfinished Critias treats of lost Atlantis. Unfinished also is Plato's last work of the twelve Books of Laws (Socrates is absent from it), a critical discussion of principles of law which Plato thought the Greeks might accept.

To be issued during 2013 ¶ ** Plato of Athens, who laid the foundations of the Western philosophical tradition and in range and depth ranks among its greatest practitioners, was born to a prosperous and politically active family ca. 427 BCE. In early life an admirer of Socrates, Plato later founded the first institution of higher learning in the West, the Academy, among whose many notable alumni was Aristotle. Traditionally ascribed to Plato are thirty-six dialogues developing Socrates' dialectic method and composed with great stylistic virtuosity, together with thirteen letters. Republic, a masterpiece of philosophical and political thought, concerns righteousness both in individuals and in communities, and proposes an ideal state organized and governed on philosophical principles. This edition, which replaces the original Loeb edition by Paul Shorey, offers text, translation, and annotation that are fully current with modern scholarship.Currently, 2012, the edition translated by Paul Shorey originally issued in 1930-'35, is still available .

FRAGMENTS Translated by Paul Nixon. 1938/latest printing/378pp ¶ ** Plautus made the Romans laugh. This highly successful playwright transformed the mild-mannered Greek New Comedy written more than a century earlier into a more playful and ribald style. Unlike Terence, whose plays were thoroughly Hellenic, Plautus introduces into his borrowings Roman characters, customs, and objects. Plautus is the earliest Latin author of whom we have more than fragments; twenty-one of his plays are extant. Plautus (Titus Maccius), born about 254 BCE at Sarsina in Umbria, went to Rome, engaged in work connected with the stage, lost his money in commerce, then turned to writing comedies. Twenty-one plays by Plautus have survived (one is incomplete). The basis of all is a free translation from comedies by such writers as Menander, Diphilus, and Philemon. So we have Greek manners of Athens about 300-250 BCE transferred to the Roman stage of about 225-185, with Greek places, people, and customs, for popular amusement in a Latin city whose own culture was not yet developed and whose manners were more severe. To make his plays live for his audience, Plautus included many Roman details, especially concerning slavery, military affairs, and law, with some invention of his own, notably in management of metres. The resulting mixture is lively, genial and humorous, with good dialogue and vivid style. There are plays of intrigue (Two Bacchises, The Haunted House, Pseudolus); of intrigue with a recognition theme (The Captives, The Carthaginian, Curculio); plays which develop character (The Pot of Gold, Miles Gloriosus); others which turn on mistaken identity (accidental as in the Menaechmi; caused on purpose as in Amphitryon); plays of domestic life (The Merchant, Casina, both unpleasant; Trinummus, Stichus, both pleasant). Volumes 1-4 are recent translations, Volume 5 is still the 1935 translation. fine set in fine d/j's  £85.00

[TM0088] PROPERTIUS. ELEGIES. Edited and translated by G. P. Goold The passionate and dramatic elegies of Propertius gained him a reputation as one of Rome's finest love poets. Here he portrays the uneven course of his love affair with Cynthia and also tells us much about the society of his time. And in later poems he turns to the legends of ancient Rome. In this important new edition of the elegies of Propertius, Goold solves some long-standing questions of interpretation and delivers a faithful and stylish prose translation. "This translation is... lively, elegant, and scholarly... [Goold's] text is not only independent but enterprising, a refreshing change after Fedili's Teubner." --D. R.

[091170-2] PRUDENTIUS. Works in 2 Volumes.. ( Volumes 387 and 398 ) 2 Volumes, s.Translated by H. J. Thomson Prudentius has been called "the father of Christian allegory." Born in 348, Prudentius achieved distinction in government administration but retired in later life to write devotional poetry, becoming the first to use the classical Latin verse forms with complete success in the service of the new faith. His lyrical poetry includes Hymns for the Day, a cycle of twelve hymns for various times of the day, parts of which are still found in modern hymnals; and Crowns of Martyrdom, fourteen long poems celebrating the lives of martyrs, including "The Passion of Agnes." Prudentius also wrote two long didactic poems: Apotheosis, on the doctrine of the Trinity; and Hamartigenia (Origin of Sin), which attacks the Gnostic theologian Marcion. The Loeb edition includes, as well, his Psychomachia, an allegorical description of the struggle between (Christian) virtues and (pagan) vices; Contra Symmachum, a polemic against paganism based on the events of the year 384; and a series of 49 poems describing biblical scenes depicted in wall paintings on a Roman church--a valuable source on Christian iconography.

[093035-1] Quintilian. The Lesser Declamations. 2 Volumes. Edited and translated by D. R. Shackleton Bailey. The Lesser Declamations, dating perhaps from the second century a.d. and attributed to Quintilian, might more accurately be described as emanating from "the school of Quintilian." The collection--here made available for the first time in translation--represents classroom materials for budding Roman lawyers. The instructor who composed these specimen speeches for fictitious court cases adds his comments and suggestions concerning presentation and arguing tactics--thereby giving us insight into Roman law and education. A wide range of scenarios is imagined. Some evoke the plots of ancient novels and comedies: pirates, exiles, parents and children in conflict, adulterers, rapists, and wicked stepmothers abound. Other cases deal with such matters as warfare between neighboring cities, smuggling, historical (and quasi-historical) events, tyrants and tyrannicides. Two gems are the speech opposing a proposal to equalize wealth, and the case of a Cynic youth who has forsworn worldly goods but sues his father for cutting off his allowance. Of the original 388 sample cases in the collection, 145 survive. These are now added to the  in a two-Volume edition, a fluent translation by D. R. Shackleton Bailey facing an updated Latin text.

Basore Seneca's Stoic philosophy is captured in his Moral Essays. On Providence (which tries to answer the question: why, if god is omnipotent, do good people suffer), On Constancy (on Stoic self-sufficiency), On Anger, and On Clemency (addressed to the emperor Nero) are included in the first of this three-Volume edition. Volume II contains On the Good Life (outlining the Stoic program of living according to nature), On Leisure, On Tranquility (in which Seneca suggests a way of life that will bring contentment), On the Brevity of Life (which argues that intellectual pursuits and a proper understanding of time will make full even a short life), and the three Consolations (to Marcia, to Helvia, to Polybius). On Benefits (in Volume III) discusses what constitutes a favor, how it should be given and how received, and the nature of gratitude and ingratitude. VOLUME I. DE PROVIDENTIA. DE CONSTANTIA. DE IRA.

Gummere Probably the most attractive of Seneca's works is this collection of 124 Epistles or Letters to Lucilius. Here Seneca writes occasionally about technical problems of philosophy, but more often in a relaxed style about moral and ethical questions, relating them to personal experiences: visits to gladiatorial shows and seaside resorts, the rigors of travel, the loss of friends, and the like. The reader is thus transported to the first century Roman scene while sampling the Stoic philosopher's thoughts about the good life. The Loeb edition is in three Volumes: VOLUME IV.

OEDIPUS AT COLONUS 1994/608pp., Volume III: Fragments 1996, 442pp., index. ( Volumes 20, 21 and 483 ) (Bi-lingual Greek-English texts) Sophocles (c. 490-404 B.C.), with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm--but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end. Hugh Lloyd-Jones now gives us a masterful new translation of the seven surviving plays of Sophocles. The facing Greek is the corrected version of the Oxford Classical Text edited by Hugh Lloyd-Jones and Nigel Wilson (1990). Volume I contains Oedipus Tyrannus (which tells the famous Oedipus story), Ajax (a heroic tragedy of wounded self-esteem), and Electra (the story of two siblings who seek revenge on their mother and her lover for killing their father). Volume II contains Oedipus at Colonus (the climax of the fallen hero's life), Antigone (a conflict between public authority and an individual woman's conscience), Philoctetes (Odysseus' intrigue to bring an unwilling hero to the Trojan War), and The Women of Trachis (a fatal attempt by Heracles' wife to regain her husband's love). "Hugh Lloyd-Jones was a very natural choice of editor...He gives a 22-page introduction on Sophocles' life, together with a very brief consideration of the seven plays and a short guide to further reading." --Greece and Rome "Lloyd-Jones' prose is, then, just right for today's taste, which is intolerant of another's poetic sensibility interposed between itself and Sophocles." --Donald Lyons, New Criterion. In this new translation a reliable and finely tuned guide to the original - the facing Greek is the corrected version of the Oxford Classical Text, edited by Hugh Lloyd-Jones and Nigel Wilson. VOLUME III. FRAGMENTS Sophocles (497/6-406 B.C.), the second of the three great tragedians of Athens and by common consent one of the world's greatest poets, wrote more than 120 plays. Only seven of these survive complete, but we have a wealth of fragments, from which much can be learned about Sophocles' language and dramatic art. This Volume presents, in Greek and facing English translation, a collection of all the major fragments, ranging in length from two lines to a very substantial portion of the satyr play The Searchers. Prefatory notes provide frameworks for the fragments of the known plays. Many of the Sophoclean fragments were preserved by quotation in other authors; others, some of considerable size, are known to us from papyri discovered during the past century. Among the lost plays of which we have large fragments, The Searchers shows the god Hermes, soon after his birth, playing an amusing trick on his brother Apollo; Inachus portrays Zeus coming to Argos to seduce Io, the daughter of its king; and Niobe tells how Apollo and his sister Artemis punish Niobe for a slight upon their mother by killing her twelve children.

[TM0102] SUETONIUS. Translated by J. C. Rolfe. 2 Volumes. ( Volumes 31 and 38 ) s . New Introduction by K. R. Bradley Lawyer and for a time private secretary to the emperor Hadrian, Suetonius was a knowledgeable and diligent collector of facts about his world. His Lives of the Caesars and Lives of Illustrious Men are invaluable and fascinating sources of information. Seasoned with entertaining anecdotes and bits of scandalous gossip relating to the lives of the first 12 emperors, Suetonius' biographies offer a colourful picture of Roman imperial politics and society. His account of Nero's death is justly famous. For this revised edition Donna W. Hurley has selectively corrected and updated the translation and notes of Lives of the Caesars; G. P. Goold has revised the text of Lives of Illustrious Men to take account of recent scholarship. In a substantial new introduction K. R. Bradley analyzes Suetonius' work. VOLUME I.

Peterson, revised by M. Winterbottom Dialogue on Oratory is a lively conversation of three friends-Ña lawyer, a poet, and a connoisseur of oratoryÑ-about declining standards in the art of public speaking (a question that also troubled Quintilian). The discussion, relaxed and urbane, is concerned with eloquence in both political and lawcourt speeches. This work by Tacitus has a distinctly Ciceronian air.

[F0537] Theophrastus:. CHARACTERS. Translated by Jeffrey Rusten HERODAS, MIMES Translated by I. C. Cunningham CERCIDAS AND THE CHOLIAMBIC POETS Translated by A. D. Knox (1929) This Volume collects some of the liveliest examples of Greek literary portraiture. The Characters of Theophrastus sketches thirty hypothetical men, each dominated by a single fault, such as rudeness, superstitution, or greed. Unassuming in style, the sketches nonetheless bear resemblance on the one hand to Aristotle's account of faults and virtues and on the other to the vivid figures of Menandrian New Comedy. This new text and translation by Jeffrey Rusten is based on the most recent scholarship. Herodas flourished in the 270s and 260s--the high point of Hellenistic poetry. His poems are choliambic mimes, dramatic dialogues that depict characters in everyday urban settings and situations. I. C. Cunningham presents a new translation of Herodas, based on his Teubner text. Also included here, in a reprint of the earlier Loeb edition by A. D. Knox, are the fragments of Greek poetry in the choliambic meter--especially those which offer a tantalizing glimpse into the raucous and sordid world of Hipponax--and the lyric iambics on themes of Cynic philosophy by Cercidas. "Theophrastus' Characters, an engaging survey of bad behaviour, is full of what R. C. Jebb called 'the social language of Athens' as practised by members of its fourth-century leisure class...Jeffrey Rusten's recent addition to the  series provides a wholly readable translation and a conscientious edition of a problematic text." --Elizabeth Bobrick, Journal of Hellenic Studies 1993/584pp., ( Volume 255) v..g. 2nd hand  ) Hardback in fine D/J [ sp ]     £9.50

Xenophon's Anabasis is an engrossing tale of remarkable adventures. It is also an invaluable source on Greek military forces. VOLUME III. l922/7th printing/652pp., /map/index. MEMORABILIA AND OECONOMICUS Translated by E. C. Marchant SYMPOSIUM AND APOLOGIA Translated by O. J. Todd In Memorabilia or Memoirs of Socrates and in Oeconomicus, a dialogue about household management, we see the philosopher through Xenophon's eyes. Here, and in the accompanying Symposium we also obtain insight on life in Athens. The Volume concludes with Xenophon's Apology, an interesting complement to Plato's account of Socrates' defense at his trial. Ostensibly an account of a dinner party in the summer of 421 B.C., Xenophon's Symposium is a vibrant picture of an Athenian evening of quiet entertainment and conversation. Among the guests Socrates is the central figure, and--as in Plato's Symposium--love is the main subject of debate. But the style here is more relaxed and less artful than in Plato's philosophical dialogue, yielding an engaging portrait of Socrates and of Athenian social life.
