Overview

Select Papyri contains hundreds of documents revealing the public and private written culture of ancient Greece. Salvaged from rubble, ancient homes, and tombs, these papyri range from personal documents to public records and literature. With these texts, you can examine ancient Greeks’ noteworthy experiences and day-to-day lives. Study what ancient Greeks bought, how they proceeded in court, and how they handled personal disputes or agreements. Read nearly 150 poems, tragedies, and comedies by known and unknown authors, including Sophocles, Euripides, Aeschylus, Plato, and others.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each volume is included in its original Greek with an English translation for easy side-by-side comparison. Logos’ language tools help you to go deeper into the Greek text and explore each writer’s elegant language. Use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult Greek words and find every occurrence in your library. There’s never been a better way for students of history, culture, and Greek literature to absorb these works.
