Oppian, Colluthus, Tryphiodorus by Oppian( Book )

14 editions published between 1928 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OPPIAN of Cilicia flourished in the latter half of the 2nd century, and dedicated his Halieutica (in five books) to Antoninus, presumably Marcus Aurelius. It deals with the habits and characteristics of fish as well as giving instructions for fishing: if not exactly poetical, it contains a great deal of curious information. The Cynegetica, dedicated to Caracalla, is an inferior composition and may even be the work of a Syrian imitator. The first book gives an appreciation of the huntsman's horses and hounds, the three remaining being devoted to the hunting of wild animals, from the lion to the hare. The present edition is equipped with extensive zoological and ichthyological notes. As an inconsequent appendix to this volume is presented the extant work of two epic poets of Egypt who wrote in the second half of the 5th century under the influence of Nonnus. The Rape of Helen of COLLUTHUS in 394 lines is a pleasant account of the Judgement of Paris and Helen's elopement with him; TRYPHIODORUS (papyri reveal the correct spelling to be Triphiodorus) deals with The Taking of Troy in 691 lines, beginning with the Wooden Horse and ending with the sacrifice of Polyxena

Argonautica by Apollonius( Book )

4 editions published in 1780 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Apollonius Rhodius's Argonautica, composed in the third century B.C.E., is the epic retelling of Jason's quest for the golden fleece. Along with his contemporaries Callimachus and Theocritus, Apollonius refashioned Greek poetry to meet the interests and aesthetics of a Hellenistic audience, especially that of Alexandria in the Ptolemaic period following Alexander's death. In this carefully crafted work of 5,835 hexameter verses in four books, the author draws on the preceding literary traditions of epic (Homer), lyric (Pindar), and tragedy (especially Euripides) but creates an innovative and complex narrative that includes geography, religion, ethnography, mythology, adventure, exploration, human psychology, and, most of all, the coming of age and love affair of Jason and Medea. It greatly influenced Roman authors such as Catullus, Virgil, and Ovid, and was imitated by Valerius Flaccus." "This new edition of the first volume in the Loeb Classical Library offers a fresh translation and an improved text."--Jacket
