Sophron's mimes : text, translation, and commentary by Sophron( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Greek, Ancient [to 1453] and held by 218 libraries worldwide
"Sophron of Syracuse wrote in the late fifth/early fourth century BC. He represents our only surviving example of classical Greek mime, and is an important example of the classical literary tradition outside Athens. This is the first book devoted exclusively to the mimes for over fifty years, and the first-ever in English. It provides a new translation of the fragments, and a detailed commentary that explores not only Sophron's relationship to early, non-mime traditions such as iambus, but also his influence on Hellenistic poetry, particularly Theocritus and Herodas. The text is based on Kassel and Austin's magisterial Poetae Comici Graeci, but there are also several new fragments. A substantial introductions deals with the meagre biographical material and discusses the important question of the mimes' performance and audience. There is detailed discussion of Sophron's dialect and lexicon, the textual tradition, and his impact on post-classical literature."--BOOK JACKET
Characters by Theophrastus( Book )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
This volume collects important examples of Greek literary portraiture. The Characters of Theophrastus consists of thirty fictional sketches of men who are each dominated by a single fault, such as arrogance, boorishness, or superstition. The Hellenistic poet Herodas wrote mimes, a popular entertainment in which one actor or a small group portrayed a situation from everyday life, concentrating on depiction of character rather than on plot. The volume also includes a new translation and text of extant portions of the mimes of Sophron, a Syracusan of the fifth century BCE Here too is a selection of anonymous mime fragments. The work of Sophron and the anonymous mime fragments are newly added to the Loeb Classical Library in this second edition of a volume published in 1993. Jeffrey Rusten and Ian Cunningham have also updated their editions of Theophrastus and Herodas

Fictionalized faults are the focus of Characters by Theophrastus (c. 370-c. 285 BCE). The Hellenistic poet Herodas wrote Mimes, in which everyday life is portrayed and character as opposed to plot depicted. Mimes by Sophron (fifth century BCE) and anonymous mime fragments also represent that genre
