EUHORMOS is an international book series intended for monographs and collective volumes on classical antiquity. Specifically, it welcomes manuscripts related to the concept of ‘anchoring innovation’ by classical scholars of all disciplines from all over the world. All books will be published in Open Access (online) as well as in print.
The series publishes book-length studies (single-authored or edited) of ancient innovations and their societal perceptions and valuations, in particular in connection with their ‘anchoring’, the various ways in which ‘the new’ could (or could not) be connected to what was already familiar. ‘The new’ is not restricted to the technical or scientific domains, but can include the ‘new information’ imparted by speakers through linguistic means, literary innovation, political, social, cultural or economic innovation, and new developments in material culture.

EUHORMOS is one of the results of the Dutch so-called Gravitation Grant (2017), awarded to a consortium of scholars from OIKOS, the National Research School in Classical Studies. See

EUHORMOS is the Homeric term for a harbour ‘in which the anchoring is good’. Under this auspicious title, we aim to publish a book series striving to afford ‘good anchorage’ to studies contributing to a better understanding of ‘anchoring innovation’ in Greco-Roman Antiquity.

For sending your proposal or submitting manuscripts for the series, please contact Brill’s Associate Editor for Classical Studies, Giulia Moriconi.

The Philological and Historical Commentary to Ammianus Marcellinus' Res Gestae is the standard and the only complete commentary on Res Gestae. It is of great importance to scholars in Roman history, Latin philology, military history and historiography in general.

Drijvers have steadily worked on the commentaries to the remaining books 19-31 of Res Gestae. Their collaborative work has received much praise in the international scholarly world, and has been completed in 2018.

Heracles in Early Greek Epic examines the protean nature of the greatest Greek hero, Heracles in Homeric and Hesiodic poetry, as well as in fragmentary epics such as Creophylus’ Oichalias Halosis, Pisander’s Heracleia, and Panyassis’ Heracleia. Several contributors explore Heracles’ associations with heroes in Near-Eastern literature and reflections in early epic about his involvement in the first sack of Troy, the tale of Hesione and the ketos, the war against the Meropes on Cos, and the sack of Oechalia. Other contributors study his role in other Archaic and Classical epics such as those written by Creophylus, Pisander, and Panyassis.

How did ancient Greeks and Romans regard work? It has long been assumed that elite thinkers disparaged physical work, and that working people rarely commented on their own labors. The papers in this volume challenge these notions by investigating philosophical, literary and working people’s own ideas about what it meant to work. From Plato’s terminology of labor to Roman prostitutes’ self-proclaimed pride in their work, these chapters find ancient people assigning value to multiple different kinds of work, and many different concepts of labor.
Mnemosyne Supplements, Late Antique Literature is a monograph series devoted to studies of the literature of Late Antiquity, East and West. The term 'literature' is used in two ways. It describes the topical focus of the series: monographs that explore the specifically literary qualities of late antique texts and the precise literary moves made by their authors, but also studies that bring a specifically literary methodology to their reading of texts, or that contextualize and/or historicize literary production in Late Antiquity.
In what questions are scholars of Horace currently interested? What opportunities does this core Roman author offer twenty-first-century critics? This book discusses recent work on Horace by genre, moving from the early Satires through to the late Epistles. It also suggests new scholarly approaches to the poet, providing various ways of interpreting Horace’s background, genre categories, metaphors, and ethics. The target readership consists of scholars new to the field seeking to familiarize themselves swiftly with the formidable bibliography, and of specialists interested in a different perspective on this important but notoriously evasive author.
