About this title

Synopsis:

The editors subject the Garland of Philip - an ancient anthology represented in the Palatine collection - to the same close scrutiny as the Hellenistic Epigrams, also published in Cambridge. Besides the epigrams known to have been included in the Garland the editors include other epigrams by Garland-poets and epigrams of other poets from the period 90 BC to AD 40. The first volume arranges authors alphabetically and numbers the epigrams in sequence under each author. There is full critical apparatus and a prose translation of the whole collection. The second volume contains ample commentary on the text and Greek and English indexes. The long introduction discusses the identification of the Garland-poets, style and subject matter, and the authorities for the text.
