1699, THEOCRITUS, Theokritou ta Evriskomena, Idyllion, Theocriti quæ extant cum graecis scholiis notis et indicibus, First Oxford Edition


Theocritus (Θεόκριτος, c. 300 BC – after 260 BC) was a Greek poet from Sicily, Magna Graecia, and the creator of Ancient Greek pastoral poetry. His Idylls are still widely read today, much in part to fine 17th-century examples such as this 1699 Oxford printing. This particular edition is considerably noteworthy it features both Latin and original Greek texts.
