Aulus Gellius, who lived in Rome in the mid-second century A.D., wrote his Noctes Atticae in twenty volumes. Of those, all but the beginning, end, and chapter headings survive. The work is a collection of short chapters on topics ranging from philosophy, history, and law to grammar and literary criticism, and was written with the purpose of entertaining and instructing Gellius's children. This two-volume edition provides a complete reexamination of the codices, full collations of the numerous fragmentary citations in the text, and the readings of the newly discovered Manuscript F from the ninth century. The most accurate treatment to date of this important corpus, these volumes will be of special interest to students of Latin literature and ancient history.
