Ctesias : on India and fragments of his minor works by Ctesias( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Greek doctor serving at the court of the Persian king Artaxerxes II in the fifth century BC, Ctesias met travellers and visitors from the far eastern reaches of the Persian Empire. His Indika (On India) was the first monograph ever written on India by a western author and helped shape the Greek view of India. This book is a full English translation and commentary on all the extant fragments of the Indika, along with fragments of Ctesia's minor works never before translated into English

Ctesias' History of Persia : tales of the Orient by Ctesias( Book )

13 editions published between 1584 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Towards the end of the fifth century BC Ctesias of Cnidus wrote his 23 book History of Persia. Ctesias is a remarkable figure: he lived and worked in the Persian court and, as a doctor, tended to the world's most powerful kings and queens. His position gave him special insight into the workings of Persian court life and access to the gossip and scandal surrounding Persian history and court politics, past and present. His History of Persia was completed at a time when the Greeks were fascinated by Persia and seems very much to cater to contemporary interest in Persian wealth and opulence, powerful Persian women, the institution of the harem, kings and queens, eunuchs and secret plots. Presented here in English translation for the first time with commentaries, Ctesias offers a fascinating insight into Persia in the fifth century BC
