This is the last in a set of four texts, two of which have already been used in the classroom and refined in the light of feedback both general and specific. This volume concentrates on historiography. These editions are designed for post-beginners in Greek and other learners wishing to consolidate their reading skills. Particular attention is paid to idiomatic usage (both in Greek and English), word order and the use of particles and particle-combinations, while practical guidance is given on mastering the verbal systems and other features of the language which beginners generally find problematic. The four units may be studied in succession as part of a progressive course, but each unit is sufficiently self-contained to permit the pursuit of particular interests. The course comprises: Unit 1 Forensic Oratory - Lysias: On the Murder of Eratosthenes Unit 2 Philosophy - Plato: Crito Unit 3 Political Oratory - Demosthenes: Third Philippic Unit 4 Historiography - Thucydides: Events at Pylos and Sphacteria
Malcolm Campbell is Reader in Greek at the University of St Andrews, UK. His numerous publications on Greek literature include commentaries on Apollonius Rhodius, Moschus and Quintus Smyrnaeus, and a lexicon to Triphiodorus.

From Our Editors

What did the Greeks and Romans know about the origins of disease and treating common illnesses? Did they have organized medical systems to cope with broken bones, respiratory problems and other ailments? Helen King examines the role of the ancient healthcare profession in Greek and Roman Medicine, a great text for scholars and students of antiquity.
