  • Historiographie in der Antikeby Klaus-Peter Adam

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 137.99

    Historiographical documents from Ancient Greece have existed at least since the time of Herodotus; an historical awareness developed before his time, as evidenced in historical omnia, epic literature from Mesopotamia, in the texts of Hittite letters and treaties, and in Egyptian sources. The book explores the conceptual and formal characteristics... more...

  • Philosophy and Salvation in Greek Religionby Vishwa Adluri

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 159.23

    Although Greek authors treat philosophy and theology in the closest contiguity, most scholarship still reflects the 19th century prejudice according to which philosophy is a rational enterprise, while theology is a dogmatic discipline. Yet, as this volume demonstrates, Greek philosophy emerges from and remains closely linked to the archaic... more...

  • The Byzantine Alexander Poemby Willem J. Aerts

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 169.85

    Among the many versions of the Alexander Romance originating from Alexandria (3rd century AD) the long Byzantine Alexander Poem takes a special place.

This edition presents a new critical text of the... more...

  • The Seven Against Thebesby Aeschylus

    Dancing Unicorn Books 2017; US$ 0.99

    Aeschylus was the first of the three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays can still be read or performed, the others being Sophocles and Euripides. He is often described as the father of tragedy: our knowledge of the genre begins with his work and our understanding of earlier tragedies is largely based on inferences from his surviving plays. Only seven... more...

  • Three Other Theban Playsby Aeschylus; Euripides

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2016; US$ 12.95

    Though now associated mainly with Sophocles' Theban Plays and Euripides' Bacchae, the theme of Thebes and its royalty was a favorite of ancient Greek poets, one explored in a now lost epic cycle, as well as several other surviving tragedies. With a rich Introduction that sets three of these plays within the larger contexts of Theban legend and of Greek... more...

  • Oresteiaby Aeschylus; Peter Meineck; Helene P. Foley

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1998; US$ 10.95

    Meineck's translation is faithful and supple; the language employed is modern without betraying the grandeur and complexity--particularly the images--of the Aeschylean text. After reading this translation, one has but one further wish: to see it and hear it at Delphi, Epidaurus or Syracuse. --Herman Van Looy, L'Antiquite Classique more...
