Poems and Poetical Fragments
Originally published in 1953, this volume gathers together the poems of Nicander (2nd century BC), the renowned Ancient Greek poet, physician and grammarian. Consummately edited, the text contains the original Greek poetry with a parallel page translation, together with a brief biography, an introduction to the verse and a generous notes section at the end. This remains a fascinating edition that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Nicander.
