Various: The Greek Anthology (Selections), v.1, 2 December 2008.

Select Epigrams From The Greek Anthology
Edited With a Revised Text, Translation, and Notes (1890)
By J. W. Mackail, Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford.

A collection of Greek epigrams and short poems by various authors. It includes Plato’s poem to Asterion (whose name means “little star”), “On the stars thou gazest, my Star; would I were heaven, that I might look on thee with many eyes.”
There are poems on love, life and death, plus epitaphs to people and their pets.

The Introduction and notes take half of the book. I would recommend starting with the poems and leaving the rather scholarly Introduction till later (or even ignoring it altogether).

The text came from PG. I have reformatted, and linked 294 footnotes.
The cover image is from an Attic red-figure kylix (cup) and shows Zeus seducing Ganymede.

That's nothing. I did over 5000 for the Burton translation of the Thousand Nights and a Night.

Patricia, I am in awe at the amount of work that you put into being able to have the output that you have.

I have downloaded your latest and enjoyed others.

I merely wanted to give you a very big THANK YOU.
