Main description: Hesychius' 5th(?)-century Greek lexicon is a very important survivor of ancient learning, including fragments of Greek literature and offering material, not yet fully evaluated, on patristic writings. The final critical edition was begun by Kurt Latte (Vol. 1, 1953 and Vol. 2, 1966, Copenhagen: Munksgaard; now out of print) and continued by Hansen (SGLG 11/3, 2005). As with vol. 3, the current vol. 4 provides for the first time a detailed report of the unique manuscript and a critical text, taking into account the relevant modern scholarship, and citing parallels from related works. A volume of indexes and addenda is planned (to be SGLG 11/5), as is a revised edition of the two Latte volumes (to be SGLG 11/1 and 11/2)

3 editions published in 1596 in Latin and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This rich compendium on the lives and doctrines of philosophers ranges over three centuries, from Thales to Epicurus (to whom the whole tenth book is devoted); 45 important figures are portrayed. Diogenes Laertius carefully compiled his information from hundreds of sources and enriches his accounts with numerous quotations. Diogenes Laertius lived probably in the earlier half of the 3rd century CE, his ancestry and birthplace being unknown. His history, in ten books, is divided unscientifically into two Successions or sections: Ionian from Anaximander to Theophrastus and Chrysippus, including the Socratic schools; Italian from Pythagoras to Epicurus, including the Eleatics and sceptics. It is a very valuable collection of quotations and facts."--Publisher description
