Researching the Ancient Greco-Roman World

Series of Printed Texts

Alden Library has complete sets of several standard series of texts and commentaries. Most of the volumes in these sets are located in the PA section of the 7th floor of Alden Library. The Oxford Classical Texts series, however, is in a separate location, in the Scholar's Room, the Very Quiet reading room on the 4th floor.

There are many other texts, translations, and commentaries--most in the PA section, although some for historians, philosophers, et al., are in the call number ranges for those disciplines.

Online Texts
