Hellenistic collection : Philitas, Alexander of Aetolia, Hermesianax, Euphorion, Parthenius by J. L Lightfoot( Book )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents a selection of Hellenistic prose and poetry, ranging chronologically from Philitas of Cos through Alexander of Aetolia and Hermesianax of Colophon to Euphorion of Chalcis and Parthenius of Nicaea, whose mythography Sufferings in Love is the major work in the collection. Knowledge of many of these texts has been increased by papyrological discoveries in the last century, yet few of them have appeared in English translation before now. Taken together, these works represent the geographic and stylistic range of a rich and inventive period in Classical literature."--Jacket
Parthenius of Nicaea : the poetical fragments and the Erōtika pathēmata by Parthenius( Book )

17 editions published in 1999 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first study of all the extant remains of the important Hellenistic poet and mythographer, Parthenius of Nicaea, reputed to have been Virgil's tutor in Greek and a major literary figure in his own right. A new edition of his poetic fragments, this book presents the first commentary on Parthenius since the work of August Meineke (1843); it also attempts to contextualize his work within the traditions of Hellenistic poetry and within the 'neoteric revolution' of late Republican Rome. The prime importance of the work is that it aims to be a comprehensive treatment of a relatively neglected and marginalized figure; and that it sets Parthenius' poetry and prose side by side to illustrate and contextualize a literary personality who was unusual in antiquity as an accomplished writer in both genres."--Jacket
On the Syrian goddess by Lucian( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first edition of and full-length commentary on On the Syrian Goddess, an ionic ethnography of the Holy City of Hierapolis in northern Syria, where the Syrian goddess, Atargatis was worshipped. This treatise is one of the most important literary sources for a religion of the Roman Near East in its native setting. Traditionally ascribed to Lucian of Samosata, the work has often been viewed as satire. Lightfoot argues for a much subtler reading, for the first time combining a literary and philological approach with the evidence of archaeology to set this complex treatise in the fullest possible context. The result bears on the religious culture of Roman Syria; on the genre of Herodotean ethnography and its revival and reception in the Second Sophistic; and on Lucian of Samosata himself. The edition is based on a collation of all existing manuscripts and an English translation is provided."--BOOK JACKET
Description of the known world by Dionysius( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, Lightfoot offers a detailed study of an ancient Greek geographical poem by Dionysius, a scholar-poet who flourished in Alexandria during the reign of Hadrian, which describes the world as it was then known. In antiquity, it was widely read and extremely influential, both in the schoolroom and among later poets. Translated into Latin, the subject of commentaries, and popular in Byzantium, it offers insights into multiple traditions of ancient geography, both literary and more scientific, and displays interesting affiliations to the earlier school of Alexandrian poets. The introductory essays discuss the poem's place in the literary context of ancient geography, focusing on its language, style, and metre, whereby Dionysius shows himself a particularly painstaking heir of the Hellenistic poets, and illustrates how intricately he interlaces sources and models to produce a mosaic of geographical learning. Particular emphasis is given to Dionysius' place in the ancient tradition of didactic poetry, and to his artful manipulations of ancient ethnographical convention to produce a vision of a bounteous, ordered, and harmonious world in the high days of the Roman Empire. The commentary, supported by a fresh edition and English translation, discusses Dionysius as a geographer but, above all, as a literary artist. This volume contributes to the revival of interest in, and appreciation of, imperial hexameter poetry, and brings to the fore a poem that deserves to be every bit as well-known as its Hellenistic counterpart, the Phaenomena of Aratus."--
