From the Back Cover:

Arguably the greatest /Greek lyric poet, Pindar (518-438 B. C.) was a controversial figure in fifth-century Greece-a conservative Boiotian aristocrat who studied in Athens and a writer on physical prowess whose interest in the Games was largely philosophical. Pindar's Epinician Odes-choral songs extolling victories in the Games at Olympia, Delphi, Nemea and Korinth cover the whole spectrum of the Greek moral order, from earthly competition to fate and mythology.

Language Notes:

Text: English, Greek (translation)
