Menander by Menander( Book )
31 editions published between 1960 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 974 libraries worldwide
Volume III. This volume completes the Loeb Classical Library's new edition of the leading writer of New Comedy. W. Geoffrey Arnott, an internationally recognized Menander expert, provides a Greek text based on careful study of recently discovered papyri, a skilful translation, and full explanatory notes. So influential in antiquity -- his plays were adapted for the Roman stage by Plautus and Terence -- Menander's comic art can now be fully known and enjoyed. It is a comedy that focuses on the hazards of love and trials of family life. Volume III begins with Samia (The Woman from Samos), which has come down to us nearly complete. Here too are the very substantial extant portions of Sikyonioi (The Sicyonians) and Phasma (The Apparition) as well as Synaristosai (Women Lunching Together), on which Plautus' Cistellaria was based. The volume also includes a selection of papyrus fragments attributed to Menander. The surviving portions of ten Menander plays are in the second volume of Arnott's widely praised edition. Among these are the recently published fragments of Misoumenos (The Man She Hated), which sympathetically presents the flawed relationship of a soldier and a captive girl; and the surviving half of Perikeiromene (The Girl with Her Hair Cut Short), a comedy of mistaken identity and lovers' quarrel. Volume I contains six of Menander's plays, including the only complete one extant, Dyskolos (The Peevish Fellow), which won first prize in Athens in 317 B.C., and Dis Expaton (Twice a Swindler), the original of Plautus' Two Bacchises

Birds in the ancient world from A to Z by W. Geoffrey Arnott( Book )

Ancient Birds from A to Z gathers together the ancient information available, listing all the names that ancient Greeks gave their birds and all their descriptions and analyses. Arnott identifies as many of them as possible in the light of modern ornithological studies. The ancient Greek bird names are transliterated into English script, and all that the ancients said about birds is presented in English. This book is accordingly the first complete discussion of ancient bird names that will be accessible to readers without ancient Greek. The only large-scale examination of ancient birds for sev

Ancient birds from A-Z by W. Geoffrey Arnott( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"The ancient Greek bird names are transliterated into English script, and all that the classical writers said about birds is presented in English. This book is accordingly the first complete discussion of classical bird names that will be accessible to readers without ancient Greek. The only previous study in English on the same scale was published over seventy years ago and required a knowledge of Greek and Latin. Since then there has been an enormous expansion in ornithological studies which has vastly increased our knowledge of birds, enabling us to evaluate (and explain) ancient Greek writings about birds with more confidence. With an exhaustive bibliography (partly classical scholarship and partly ornithological) added to encourage further study Birds in the Ancient World from A to Z is the definitive study of birds in the Greek and Roman world."--Jacket
