An epic poet from Panopolis, Egypt, Tryphiodorus flourished in the third or fourth century AD. His sole extant work is ‘The Taking of Ilios’, a 691-verse epic poem, narrating events from the capture of the Trojan seer Helenus to the sailing of the Greek troops after the sacking of Troy. His poetry reveals a thorough understanding of Homer and the grammatical tradition and interpretation of the Homeric poems. 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 Tryphiodorus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, an informative introduction and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
