Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Isocrates’ complete extant works, with relevant illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
