Lycophron

$ 1.49

A contemporary of Callimachus in Alexandria, the tragic poet Lycophron of Chalcis attained the status of supervisor of the comedies in the new library. The only extant work (contested by some) by Lycophron is ‘Alexandra’, a mini-epic poem, narrated by King Priam’s daughter Cassandra as a prophecy, relating the later fortunes of Troy and the Greek and Trojan heroes. It is a curiosity of Hellenic literature, showcasing an extraordinary knowledge of obscure stories, names and words. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This eBook presents Lycophron’s complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
