Overview

W. R. Paton’s Greek Anthology contains 10 volumes of Greek epigrams and other poetry. These poems come from three ancient Greek sources—The Garland of Meleager, The Garland of Philippus and The Cycle of Agathias—and contain the works of over 100 Greek poets. The anthology includes poetry from well-known poets, such as Lucian, Plato, Rufinus, Agathias Scholasticus, and Emperor Hadrian, as well as lesser-known ancient Greek poetry, some of which was originally copied from stones. Paton’s Greek Anthology is primarily assembled from The Palatine Anthology, composed in the tenth century by Constantine Cephalas, as well as the Anthology of Planudes, composed in the fourteenth century by Maximus Planudes. Today, these collected works provide a broad selection of ancient Greek poetry, offering literary windows into ancient Greek life, culture, romance, and more.

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 for deeper contextual understanding. There’s never been a better way for students of history, culture, and Greek literature to absorb these classic works.
