By: Edward Gibbon

Description: Gibbon offers an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell, a task made difficult by a lack of comprehensive written sources, though he was not the only historian to tackle the subject. Most of his ideas are directly taken from what few relevant records were available: those of the Roman moralists of the 4th and 5th centuries.

Priapeia Sportive Epigrams on Priapus

By: L. C. Smithers

Description: The Priapeia is a collection of poems (ninety five in number) in various meters on the subject of Priapus. It was compiled from literary works and inscriptions on images of the god by an unknown editor, who composed the introductory epigram.

The Seventh Letter

By: Plato

Description: The Seventh Letter is a literary and philosophical text of the mid-fourth century BC (ca. 360 BC), the authorship of which has long been disputed by classical scholars. Much contemporary scholarly opinion favors the authenticity of the text-i.e. that it was written by Plato himself, or by a student of Plato who possessed direct and intimate knowledge of the events and circumstances involved.

The Life of Apollonius of Tyana

By: Philostratus

Description: As Conybeare quaintly notes in the introduction to his Loeb edition of Philostratus' (alas, probably largely fictional) biography of Apollonius, '...for there is in it much that is very good reading and it is lightly written.' Well, this is probably not summer beach reading material, but this is an archaic delight to read, like Mandeville. We get to visit far-flung lands at the height of the Roman Empire, from India and Africa to Spain. The sage is on a que...

The Nicomachean Ethics of Aristotle

By: William David Ross

Description: Every art, every action and pursuit, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim.

The Trojan Women

By: Murray, Gilbert

Description: Though little is known for certain of his early life, Euripides was probably born around 460 b.c.e. to the farmer Mnesarchus and his wife Clito, and his studious nature quickly led him to a literary life in Athens. His work sticks out from that of his contemporaries for his attention to the political and social problems around him, although he never held public office. His plays are often ironic, pessimistic, and display radical rejection of classical decoru...

Lives of the Greek Heroines

Description: A LITTLE book bearing as its title Lives of the Greek Heroines seems scarcely to require a word of introduction. The women who have been made famous by the genius of Homer, of Aeschylus, and of Sophocles, have so stamped their noble and vigorous nature into the literature of Europe that their names have a familiar ring in the verses, even of the modern poet. To give a true picture of these women and of their lives and occupations is all that the writer of th...
