Overview

The Metamorphoses of Ovid are a compendium of the Mythological narratives of ancient Greece and Rome, which embrace a large amount of information upon almost every subject connected with the learning, traditions, manners, and customs of antiquity.

For better understanding of the different narratives and allusions, explanations have been added, which are principally derived from the writings of Herodotus, Apollodorus, Pausanias, Dio Cassius, Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Strabo, Hyginus, Nonnus, and others of the historians, philosophers, and mythologists of antiquity.

P. Ovidius Naso-commonly known as Ovid-was born at Sulmo, about, ninety miles from Rome, in the year 43 B.C.
