Oppian, Colluthus, Tryphiodorus by Oppian ( Book )
41 editions published between 1928 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oppian of Cilicia flourished in the latter half of the 2nd century, and dedicated his Fishing (in five books) to Antoninus, presumably Marcus Aurelius. It deals with the habits and characteristics of fish as well as giving instructions for fishing: if not exactly poetical, it contains a great deal of curious information. The chase, dedicated to Caracalla, is an inferior composition and may even be the work of a Syrian imitator. The first book gives an appreciation of the huntsman's horses and hounds, the three remaining being devoted to the hunting of wild animals, from the lion to the hare. This edition is equipped with extensive zoological and ichthyological notes. This volume also includes the extant work of two epic poets of Egypt who wrote in the second half of the 5th century under the influence of Nonnus. The rape of Helen of Colluthus in 394 lines is a pleasant account of the Judgement of Paris and Helen's elopement with him; Tryphiodorus (papyri reveal the correct spelling to be Triphiodorus) deals with The taking of Troy in 691 lines, beginning with the Wooden horse and ending with the sacrifice of Polyxena. -- jacket
Cynegetica by Oppian ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in Greek, Ancient and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Review text: "...a genuine step forward [...] Papathomopoulos has provided us with an attractive new edition of a work that has fallen out of favour in recent years but was once, obviously, more commonly read. This is a particularly praiseworthy achivement, given the age and quality of the critical edition that was previously available for the potential reader or researcher."Exemplaria Classica, Huelva, No. 8, 2004
