POETAE COMICI GRAECIis now the standard and indispensable reference work for the whole of Greek Comedy, a genre which flourished in Antiquity for over a millenium, from the VI century B.C. to the V century A.D.: More than 250 poets are conveniently arranged in alphabetical sequence and all the surviving texts have been carefully edited with full testimonia, detailed critical apparatus, and brief but illuminating subsidia interpretationis. The commentaries are in Latin.

This great enterprise has won universal acclaim, Vol. VI 2 Menander being singled out by the Times Literary Supplement as one of the International Books of the Year 1998.
