Further Greek epigrams : epigrams before A.D. 50 from the Greek anthology and other sources, not included in Hellenistic epigrams or The garland of Philip( Book )

23 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book continues the work done in the volumes edited by A. S. F. Gow and D. L. Page entitled Hellenistic Epigrams and The Garland of Philip. It sets out to include all Greek literary epigrams composed before AD 50 and not published in those volumes, and extends also to epigrams ascribed to certain imperial Romans. Another author commented on is Leonides of Alexandria, whose poems observe curious mathematical laws. The challenge to the authenticity of much of what passes for Simonides and the associated historical discussion constitute one of the most important sections of the book. This edition and commentary will be indispensable to scholars of Greek literature
Select papyri by Arthur S Hunt( Book )

57 editions published between 1932 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Select papyri gives a selection of Greek papyri covering a period from before 300 BCE to the eighth century CE. From such papyri we get much information about administration and social and economic conditions in Egypt, and about native Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Byzantine law, as well as glimpses of ordinary life. Also included are papyri relating to public business of various kinds in Egypt, including affairs in that country first when it was ruled by the Greek Ptolemaic kings, secondly when it was a Roman province. The earliest examples date from the reign of King Ptolemy II Philadelphus and the latest from the government by the Arabs after their conquest of Egypt in 639-641 CE. The papyri found in Egypt and included here have also yielded fragments large and small of ancient literary authors

The Agamemnon of Aeschylus : a commentary for students by Aeschylus( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This commentary discusses Aeschylus' play Agamemnon (458 BC), which is one of the most popular of the surviving ancient Greek tragedies, and is the first to be published in English since 1958. It is designed particularly to help students who are tackling Aeschylus in the original Greek for the first time, and includes a reprint of D.L. Page's Oxford Classical Text of the play. The introduction defines the place of Agamemnon within the Oresteia trilogy as a whole, and the historical context in which the plays were produced. It discusses Aeschylus' handling of the traditional myth and the main ideas which underpin his overall design: such as the development of justice and the nature of human responsibility; and it emphasizes how the power of words, seen as ominous speech-acts which can determine future events, makes a central contribution to the play's dramatic momentum. Separate sections explore Aeschylus' use of theatrical resources, the role of the chorus, and the solo characters. Finally there is an analysis of Aeschylus' distinctive poetic style and use of imagery, and an outline of the transmission of the play from 458 BC to the first printed editions."--Publisher's website
