Pindari opera quae supersuntby August Bockh, Pindar
One of the foremost scholars of his day, the German classicist August Böckh (1785–1867) was chosen by the Berlin Academy of Sciences as the first editor of the monumental Corpus inscriptionum graecarum. Before that he had published this groundbreaking edition of the extant works of the Greek poet Pindar (c.522–c.443 BCE) in two volumes, the second being split into two parts. The first volume, published in 1811, contains the only complete surviving works of Pindar, the victory odes (Epinikia). The first part of the second volume, published in 1819, contained the ancient Greek scholia. This final part, published in 1821, contains the editor's own Latin translations of Pindar's poems, with a Latin preface and extensive critical commentary. Pindarian fragments in Greek are also included, accompanied by further Latin translations and notes. The volume concludes with thorough indexes.
