A classical epic of fratricide and war, the Thebaid retells the legendary conflict between the sons of Oedipus—Polynices and Eteocles—for control of the city of Thebes. The Latin poet Statius reworks a familiar story from Greek myth, dramatized long before by Aeschylus in his tragedy Seven against Thebes. Statius chose his subject well: the Rome of his day, ruled by the emperor Domitian, was not too distant from the civil wars that had threatened the survival of the empire. Published in 92 A.D., the Thebaid was an immediate success, and its fame grew in succeeding centuries. It reached its peak of popularity in the later Middle Ages and Renaissance, influencing Dante, Chaucer, and perhaps Shakespeare. In recent times, however, it has received perhaps less attention than it deserves, in large part because there has been no accessible, dynamic translation of the work into English. Charles Stanley Ross offers a compelling version of the Thebaid rendered into forceful, modern English. Casting Statius's Latin hexameter into a lively iambic pentameter more natural to the modern ear, Ross frees the work from the archaic formality that has marred previous translations. His translation reinvigorates the Thebaid as a whole: its meditative first half and its violent second half; its intimate portrayal of defeat and retribution, and the need to seek justice at any cost. In a wide-ranging introduction, Ross provides an overview of the poem: its composition, reception and legacy; its major themes and literary influences; and its place in Statius' life. And in a helpful series of notes, he offers background information on the major characters and incidents. -- Paolo Asso

Between 1839 and 1851 Ernest Ludwig von Leutsch (1808-1887) and Friedrich Wilhelm Schneidewin (1810-1856), classics professors at the University of Göttingen, published this collection of ancient paroimia or proverbs written or collected by ancient Greek authors. Volume 1 contains writings by Zenobius, Diogenianus, Plutarchus, and Gregorius Cyprius. A critical apparatus for each text cites variant readings between manuscripts; a running Latin commentary is given below the critical apparatus; and a Latin preface, written by Schneidewin, introduces the volume and explains the editorial methods underlying the work. The Corpus has long been considered the definitive collection of Greek paroemiography and is still used as a model of textual editing by researchers today. Unsurpassed in its breath and scope, it remains an indispensable tool for students and scholars of the Greek proverbial tradition. It ranks as one of the outstanding achievements of nineteenth-century scholarship.

"The Complete Works of Aristophanes" contains the following plays: The Acharnians, The Birds, The Clouds, The Ecclesiazusae, The Frogs, The Knights, Peace, Plutus, The Thesmophoriazusae, & The Wasps.Aristophanes (c. 446 - c. 386 BC), son of Philippus, of the deme Kydathenaion (Latin: Cydathenaeum), was a comic playwright of ancient Athens. Eleven of his forty plays survive virtually complete. These, together with fragments of some of his other plays, provide the only real examples of a genre of comic drama known as Old Comedy, and are used to define it.Also known as the Father of Comedy and the Prince of Ancient Comedy, Aristophanes has been said to recreate the life of ancient Athens more convincingly than any other author. His powers of ridicule were feared and acknowledged by influential contemporaries; Plato singled out Aristophanes' play The Clouds as slander that contributed to the trial and subsequent condemning to death of Socrates although other satirical playwrights had also caricatured the philosopher.His second play, The Babylonians (now lost), was denounced by the demagogue Cleon as a slander against the Athenian polis. It is possible that the case was argued in court but details of the trial are not recorded and Aristophanes caricatured Cleon mercilessly in his subsequent plays, especially The Knights, the first of many plays that he directed himself. "In my opinion," he says through the Chorus in that play, "the author-director of comedies has the hardest job of all."

Originally published in 1936, this book is intended to supplement W. M. Lindsay's Notae Latinae of 1915, which examined Latin abbreviations of the early minuscule period (circa 700-850 AD). Bains reviews symbols employed in the following two centuries, as well as a few which were developed more fully as a result of the rise of learning and science in the twelfth century. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in palaeography.

Domestic architecture at the site of Mycenae was systematically explored for the first time in a series of investigations sponsored by the Archaeological Society of Athens and Washington University in St. Louis between 1962 and 1966 and again in 1977. The work revealed a block of houses in the area north of the Treasury of Atreus, the so-called Panagia Houses. The author describes the artifacts and reconstructed floor plans, and draws comparisons with other Bronze Age sites. University Museum Monograph, 68
