Greco-Roman History: Loeb Editions

This is an online guide designed specifically for history students enrolled in Greco-Roman History at LaGrange College.

Loeb Editions

Loeb editions provide translations of ancient Greek and Roman authors, including historians, and are valuable primary sources.  For example, Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars and Civil War are his own accounts of the wars he waged as general, and a letter by Pliny is our only eyewitness account of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried Pompeii in A.D. 79. 


These editions have English translations, along with the original Greek or Latin on the facing page.


Most of the Greek volumes have call numbers beginning PA 3612 (with authors in alphabetical order);  most Latin volumes are in the PA 6156 area.  Exceptions for Lewis Library are indicated on this guide.
