Book description

Between 1839 and 1851 Ernest Ludwig von Leutsch (1808–1887) and Friedrich Wilhelm Schneidewin (1810–1856), classics professors at the University of Göttingen, published this collection of ancient paroimia or proverbs written or collected by ancient Greek authors. Volume 2 (reissued here in two parts) contains writings by Diogenianus, Gregorius Cyprianus, Marcarius, Aesop, Apostolius and Arsenius. A critical apparatus for each text cites the variant readings between the most important manuscripts and a running Latin commentary is given below the critical apparatus. The Corpus has long been considered the definitive collection of Greek paroemiography and the editorial methods underlying it are still followed by editors today. Unsurpassed in breath and scope, the Corpus remains an indispensable tool for students and scholars of the Greek proverbial tradition. It ranks as one of the outstanding achievements of nineteenth-century classical scholarship.
