1561 Theognis of Megara + 1632 Homerís Iliad GREEK TEXTS Poetry ROME Mythology 2 Works in 1 Binding / Neither Found Selling Worldwide! The Iliad is an ancient Greek epic poem in dactylic hexameter, traditionally attributed to Homer. Set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy (Ilium) by a coalition of Greek states, it tells of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Homer is the traditionally-credited creator of the Iliad and the Odyssey, revered as the greatest of Greek epic poets. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature. Theognis of Megara (Greek: Théognis ho Megareús) was a Greek lyric poet active in approximately the sixth century BC. The work attributed to him consists of gnomic poetry quite typical of the time, featuring ethical maxims and practical advice about life. We do not find any other examples of either of these works bound with or without each other anywhere else worldwide! 16th-centry printings of Theognis are extremely rare!
