Book 6 of the Greek Anthology in Loeb

Post by vrixton » Mon Jul 16, 2018 5:12 am

Does anyone happen to know why Book 6 has vanished from print in the new Loeb Classical Library editions? It used to be included in Volume 1 of the Greek Anthology books, but now the first volume ends at book 5 and the second begins with book 7.
According to Wikipedia, Book 6 is "Votive Epigrams" which sounds a lot more interesting than the temple inscriptions of Book 3, but having not read any of them who knows! I just hate to have an incomplete set.

As far as I can see, you can only get this "missing" Book 6 by buying one of the older prints of the first volume or buy subscribing to Loeb's online library. Does anyone know why they are no longer printing this book? Or if there's another place to buy the complete Greek Anthology text?

This link should take you to the LCL #67 on Google. This is the 1916 version. It may be the older version, but at least the epigrams you're interested in are available.
