Most widely held works by John Conington
Satires by Persius( Book )

72 editions published between 1872 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the ancient world, the Satires belonged to a small class of works which remained in constant circulation. They were read in the schools, were commented upon by scholars, and were forever the subject of controversy. This translation boasts several advantages over previous English versions : it is the work of a poet rather than a Latinist, and it offers a faithful rendering of Persius' franker passages which the Victorians never dared to translate fully

The aim of James Rhoades was 'to produce a version of the Aeneid that should be in itself an English poem, and at the same time a faithful reflection of the original.' He succeeded, for his translation is both satisfactory to the purely English reader
The Satires, Epistles and Art of poetry of Horace by Horace( Book )

20 editions published between 1870 and 2006 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In venturing to follow up my translation of the Odes of Horace by a version of the Satires and Epistles, I feel that I am in no way entitled to refer to the former as a justification of my boldness in undertaking the latter. Both classes of works are doubtless explicable as products of the same original genius: but they differ so widely in many of their characteristics, that success in rendering the one, though greater than any which I can hope to have attained, would afford no presumption that the translator would be found to have the least aptitude for the other

Aeschylus (ca. 525-456 BCE), the dramatist who made Athenian tragedy one of the world's great art forms, witnessed the establishment of democracy at Athens and fought against the Persians at Marathon. He won the tragic prize at the City Dionysia thirteen times between ca. 499 and 458, and in his later years was probably victorious almost every time he put on a production, though Sophocles beat him at least once
