Most widely held works by Immanuel Bekker
History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides( Book )

74 editions published between 1821 and 1931 in 6 languages and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written four hundred years before the birth of Christ, this detailed contemporary account of the long life-and-death struggle between Athens an Sparta stands an excellent chance of fulfilling its author's ambitious claim that his writing was designed to last forever. Thucydides himself (c-460-400 B.C.) was an Athenian and achieved the rank of general in the earlier stages of the war. He applied thereafter a passion for accuracy and a contempt for myth and romance in compiling this factual record of a disastrous conflict. A translation of Thucydides' history of the wars between Athens and Sparta with introduction, notes, bibliography, and maps

The library of Greek mythology by Apollodorus( Book )

22 editions published between 1854 and 1991 in 5 languages and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apollodorus' Library has been an invaluable source book for early Greek myths from the time of its compilation in the first/second century BC to the present, influencing writers from the scholars of Byzantium to Robert Graves. It provides a complete history of Greek myth, telling the story of each of the families of heroic mythology and the various adventures associated with the main heroes and heroines, from Jason and Perseus to Heracles and Helen of Troy. As a primary source for Greek myth, as a reference work, and as an indication of how the Greeks themselves viewed their mythical traditions, the Library is indispensable to anyone who has an interest in classical mythology. Robin Hard's accessible and fluent translation is supplemented by comprehensive notes, a map, and full genealogical tables. The Introduction gives a detailed account of the Library's sources and discusses the developing traditions of Greek mythical narrative

16 editions published between 1824 and 1842 in 4 languages and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sextus Empiricus (ca. AD 160-210), exponent of scepticism and critic of the Dogmatists, was a Greek physician and philosopher, pupil and successor of the medical sceptic Herodotus (not the historian) of Tarsus. He probably lived for years in Rome and possibly also in Alexandria and Athans. His three surviving works are 'Outlines of Pyrrhonism' (three books and the practical and ethical scepticism of Pyrrho of Elis, ca. 360-275 BC, as develped later, presenting also a case against the Dogmatists); Against the Dogmatistis' (five books dealing with the Logicians, Physicists, and Ethcists); and 'Against the professors' (six books: Grammarians, Rhetors, Geometers, Arithmeticians, Astrologers, and Musicians). These two latter works might be called a general criticism of professors of all arts and sciences. Sextus' work is a source for the history of thought especially because of his development and formulation of former sceptic doctrines
