IV. Biography and Antiquarian Literature, A. Biography. Fasc. 7. Imperial and Undated Authors [Nos. 1053-1118]


The volume IV. A: Biography, Fascicle 7 Imperial and Undated Authors, forms part of Jacoby's famous Fragmente der griechischen Historiker. It can also, however, be read as a study in its own right. Belonging to the section biography it contains a complete collection of the fragments of the Greek biographers of the Imperial times as well as of the undated authors.
Apart from the Greek text, it also includes an English translation of the testimonies and fragments, and provides a rich commentary, what makes it a useful instrument both for scholars and students. As a source book on Greek Imperial biography the study is of main interest for the historian of the Imperial epoch and the classicist.

Die Fragmente der Griechischen Historiker is available in print, and now also online as part of the online reference work Jacoby Online. Please click here for more details.
