The classical scholar and philologist Gottfried Hermann (1772-1848), professor of classics at Leipzig, was especially influential in the fields of Greek grammar and poetical metres. He was among the leading scholars who argued that an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages was crucial for understanding the intellectual life of the ancient world, and should be the chief aim of philology, the study of the development of languages. Only seven of the plays of Aeschylus, the father of Greek tragedy, survive in complete form, and Hermann's was the first critical edition to contain all of them. It was published in Leipzig in two volumes in 1852, four years after his death. Volume 1 contains the texts of all of Aeschylus' tragedies and of Prometheus Bound, of which the authorship is attributed to Aeschylus, and an appendix of notes

PUBLIUS AELIUS ARISTIDES (A.D. 117-180) was born at Hadriani in Mysia. Apparently wealthy, he was superbly educated. Among his teachers was Alexander of Cotiaeum, who later instructed Lucius Verus and the future emperor Marcus Aurelius. Aristides determined to become a professional orator at a time when Greek oratory was enjoying a renewed popularity. Early in his life his health began to fail, and his illnesses, partly real, partly imagined, often impeded, but never overcame his desire for success in his chosen career. Although at first a devotee of the healing god Sarapis, he later became a worshipper of Asclepius, at whose temple in Pergamum he spent two continuous years as an incubant and in whose cult he kept faith throughout most of his life. His stylistic abilities and his attempts at emulating the great Attic writers made him famous. He was on friendly terms with many of the most powerful figures of the province of Asia and with a number of high dignitaries of the Roman Empire. Fifty three separate works of his survive, among which are to be found criticisms of Plato, treatises on oratory, the source of the Nile, orations on provincial matters, prose hymns to various gods, the Panathenaic Oration and the speech To Rome. Of especial interest are the Sacred Tales, which provide through the narrative of his illnesses and his dreams over many years, a unique insight, particularly for psychoanalysts, into the psychopathology of a highly neurotic man of classical times
