Ancient Literature, Classical World, Greco-Roman World

Ancient Authors Timeline

I’ve spent more time with ancient Greek and Roman authors in the last couple of years than I had in my entire lifetime (dissertation research). I didn’t study Classics in college—looking back I wish I had—so my knowledge of Greco-Roman literature was seriously minimal. Even now, several years in, I’m still barely a novice, if that. Anyway, one of the challenges of working with ancient sources is placing authors in their proper contexts, one of which is their historical milieu. Information about these authors and their works are plentiful to be sure, but one reference I’ve found tremendously helpful is from the folks at Harvard University Press—a timeline of ancient Greco-Roman authors.

If you’ve worked in Classics or are even a casual reader of the Loeb Classical Library, you probably already know about this. I found it helpful to have, so I thought I’d share it.
