Women's Life in Greece and Rome
A compendium of writings by and/or about women in the Greek and Roman world from the dawn of history to the advent of Christianity. The aim is to make the sources available to readers who do not know the ancient languages, or who are not inclined to go digging around in collections of inscriptions and papyri. We've included (among much else) women's poetry, men's satire, contracts, epitaphs, laws, letters, medical treatises, philosophers, historians, and saints.

The third edition was published in 2005.
