Explaining citations of ancient authors
There is a remarkable lack of consistency in how ancient authors are cited and the names that are used for them. In this volume we use the name that we think is most familiar to our readers and the most commonly in use, and our approach in the same for the titles of their works.
One more thing: an ancient book is what could be fit on a single scroll. So when we refer to a book of a work, that is what we are referring to. Chapters are subsections of books, and the same thing is true of line numbers in poetry.
Here are the ancient titles along side the titles we use for different authors works (this is not a complete list, mind you.)
