This much needed anthology presents a wide variety of Greek prose texts, chosen to illustrate both development and generic differences, and to stimulate interest in Greek culture generally. Each of the 100 passages has an introduction, and is thoroughly annotated. The extracts range from the fifth century BC to the fifth century AD and include historians (Herodotus, Thucydides); orators (Lysias, Isocrates); philosohers (Plato, Xenophon, Socrates); and writers from the Hellenistic and Roman periods.
