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. They are valuable records of military history. £69.50

[SH0186] ARISTOPHANES. Translated by Jeffrey Henderson. 5 Volumes. ( Loeb Classical Library 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 Loeb Classical Library 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 £78.00

[F3100-2C] Athenaeus. The Learned Banqueters, 8 volumes.. Edited and translated by S. Douglas Olson, 2007-2012, ( Loeb Classical Library volumes 204, 208, 224,235, 274, 327, 345, 519 ) In The Learned Banqueters, Athenaeus describes a series of dinner parties at which the guests quote extensively from Greek literature. The work (which dates to the very end of the second century CE) is amusing reading and of extraordinary value as a treasury of quotations from works now lost. Athenaeus also preserves a wide range of information about different cuisines and foodstuffs; the music and entertainments that ornamented banquets; and the intellectual talk that was the heart of Greek conviviality. S. Douglas Olson has undertaken to produce a complete new edition of the work, replacing the previous seven-volume Loeb Athenaeus (published under the title Deipnosophists).

He became a teacher of grammar at Tagaste, and lived much under the influence of his mother and his friend Alypius. About 383 he went to Rome and soon after to Milan as a teacher of rhetoric, being now attracted by the philosophy of the Sceptics and of the Neo-Platonists. His studies of Paul's letters with Alypius and the preaching of Bishop Ambrose led in 386 to his rejection of all sensual habits and to his famous conversion from mixed beliefs to Christianity. He returned to Tagaste and there founded a religious community. In 395 or 396 he became Bishop of Hippo, and was henceforth engrossed with duties, writing and controversy.

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

These (lost) and others (also lost) were partly incorporated, arranged according to contents, by Constantinus Cephalas (early 10th century?) into fifteen books now preserved in a single manuscript of the Palatine Library at Heidelberg. The grand collection was rearranged and revised by the monk Maximus Planudes (14th century) who also added epigrams lost from Cephalas's compilation. hardbacks in d/j £89.50

[TM0044-1] Greek Lyric.. 5 Volumes. Edited and translated by David A. Campbell. (Bi-lingual Text - Loeb Classical Library 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

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.

EPIDEMICS II, IV-VII Edited and translated by Wesley D. Smith In this seventh volume of the ongoing Loeb edition of the Hippocratic Collection, Wesley Smith presents the first modern English translation of Books 2 and 4-7 of the Epidemics (the other two books are already available in the first volume). 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.

Josephus's eye-witness account of the revolt of 66-70 C.E. against Roman rule, recounts the outbreak of war; the campaign in Galilee--under his command--including the siege of Jotapata; the strategic isolation of Jerusalem, and finally the fall of the city to Titus and destruction of the Temple in 70; the return of the conquerors to Rome in triumphal procession; and the suicidal stand at Masada.

Works in 8 Volumes.. 8 Volumes (Bi-lingual Texts - Loeb Classical Library volumes 14 ,54, 130, 162, 302, 430, 431, 432 ) Satire blends with comic art in Lucian's tales, fantasies, and dialogues. With ebullient wit he mocks teachers of literature, the various philosophical schools, popular religions, historians and writers, the Olympian gods, and the foibles of mortals. In The Dream he jocularly recounts his own career. Native of Samosata on the Euphrates, Lucian traveled widely in the Roman Empire as far as Gaul. His 80 extant works (published here in 8 volumes) offer insight on the intellectual world of the second century AD along with mischievous and sophisticated entertainment. VOLUME I. PHALARIS.

ART OF LOVE. COSMETICS. REMEDIES FOR LOVE. IBIS. WALNUT-TREE. SEA FISHING. CONSOLATION. Translated by J. H. Mozley "The Art of Love" is a vivaciously witty poem on the art of seduction, with illustrative stories interwoven. 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. This volume also contains "Cosmetics," "Ibis," and three poems now judged not to be by Ovid. Mozley's edition has been revised and updated by G. P. Goold. 1929 /revised by G. P. Goold, 1979/396pp., /indexes In the Metamophoses Ovid retells in one poetic whole an enormous range of stories of classical mythology. Connected by the theme of miraculous change (hence the title), the narratives pass in review, from the dawn of creation down to the transfiguration of CaesarÕs soul into a star. Each important myth is touched upon and ingeniously linked to the next as the poet progresses through his historical account. OvidÕs most influential work is here given a fluent prose translation.

STICHUS. THREE BOB DAY. TRUCULENTUS. THE TALE OF A TRAVELLING BAG. 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

THE LAW OF THE TWELVE TABLES Lucilius, the "father" of Roman satire, was born probably in 180 BC to a family of senatorial status. Almost everything became a subject of his satiric verse: politics, correspondence, a journey, social life and its problems, literary and dramatic criticism, even spelling. In the surviving 1300 lines of his work a conversational style predominates, a tone that reappears in more refined language in Horace's satire. 1938/6th printing/584 pp., VOLUME IV.

[090904-1] Seneca. MORAL ESSAYS and Other Titles (see below) 10 Loeb Volumes Together. (Loeb Classical Library volumes (BI-LINGUAL TEXTS) 214, 254, 310, 75, 76, 77, 78, 450, 457, 62, ) Moral essays: 3 volumes. Translated by John W. 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.

The discussion, relaxed and urbane, is concerned with eloquence in both political and lawcourt speeches. This work by Tacitus has a distinctly Ciceronian air.

John Dillery has corrected the Greek text in accordance with current scholarship, revised Brownson's translation, supplied updated notes, and provided a new Introduction. 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. VOLUME IV. 1923/ REVISED EDITION 2013 by J. Henderson, translated by O.J. Todd. XVIII,/702pp., This volume collects Xenophon's portrayals of his associate, Socrates. In Memorabilia (or Memoirs of Socrates) and in Oeconomicus, a dialogue about household management, we see the philosopher through Xenophon's eyes. Here, as 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's defense at his trial. /. VOLUME V. BOOKS I-IV l914/7th printing/416pp. VOLUME VI.
