Individual Authors and Works

Please contact me if you find that links are not working or are incorrectly reported here, or with any suggestions to improve this list. In a few cases source material is available on multiple sites; for example, the LATIN tag might link to the Latin source material at site A, but the ENGLISH tag might link to an English translation at site B with Latin alongside it there as well. If the author or work is not listed below it may still exist in one of the archive collections listed at the bottom of this page.

* = partial (for one work) or incomplete (works of an author). † = abridgment. If one of the links below leads to only part of an expected work, let me know so I can flag it.

Abbreviations are from the Oxford Classical Dictionary, rev. 3rd. ed. (2003), when listed there.
L = Latin; G = Greek; E = English; F = French.
