GALEN
On Temperaments. On Non-Uniform Distemperment. The Soul’s Traits Depend on Bodily Temperament
Edited and Translated by Ian Johnston
Galen, On Temperaments. In On Temperaments, Galen of Pergamum sets out his concept of the combination of the four elemental qualities (hot, cold, wet, and dry), which is fundamental to his account of the structure and function of human, animal, and plant bodies. Two related works explore disturbances in this combination and their consequences.
LIVY

History of Rome, Volume VII Livy (Titus Livius, 64 or 59 BC–AD 12 or 17), the great Roman historian, presents a vivid narrative of Rome’s rise from the traditional foundation of the city in 753 or 751 BC to 9 BC and illustrates the collective and individual virtues necessary to maintain such greatness. The third decad (21–30) chronicles the Second Punic War of 220–205 BC. This Loeb edition replaces the original (1943) by Frank Gardner Moore.
