HISTORIA AUGUSTA
Volumes I–III
Translated by David Magie
Revised by David Rohrbacher
Historia Augusta, Volume I The Historia Augusta is a biographical collection written by a single author under six pseudonyms that covers the lives of the Roman emperors from Hadrian (r. 117–138) to Carinus (283–285). While it is our most detailed surviving source for this period, it has more value as an enigmatic work of literary fiction than as history.
PLATO
Lysis. Symposium. Phaedrus
Edited and Translated by Chris Emlyn-Jones and William Preddy
Plato, Lysis. Symposium. Phaedrus Works in this volume explore the relationship between two people known as love (erōs) or friendship (philia). In Lysis, Socrates meets two young men at a wrestling school; in Symposium, he joins a company of accomplished men at a drinking party; and in Phaedrus, experimental speeches about love lead to a discussion of rhetoric.
