The Greek anthology by W. R Paton( Book )

81 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Greek Anthology contains some 4,500 short Greek poems in the sparkling and diverse genre of epigram, written by more than a hundred poets and collected over many centuries. To the original collection, called The Garland (Stephanus) by its contributing editor, Meleager of Gadara (first century BCE), was added another Garland by Philip of Thessalonica (mid-first century CE) and then a Cycle by Agathias of Myrina (567/568 CE). In about 900 CE these collections (now lost) and perhaps others (also lost, by Rufinus, Diogenianus, Strato, and Palladas) were partly incorporated and arranged into fifteen books according to subject by Constantine Cephalas; most of his collection is preserved in a manuscript called the Palatine Anthology. A second manuscript, the Planudean Anthology made by Maximus Planudes in 1301, contains additional epigrams omitted by Cephalas. Outstanding among the poets are Meleager, Antipater of Sidon, Crinagoras, Palladas, Agathias, and Paulus Silentiarius. This Loeb edition of The Greek Anthology replaces the earlier edition by W. R. Paton, with a Greek text and ample notes reflecting current scholarship
The histories by Polybius( Book )

62 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main part of Polybius' history covers the years 264-146 B.C. It describes the rise of Rome; the destruction of Carthage; the domination of Greece by Rome. It is a great work, based on research, full of insight into customs, institutions, geography, causes of events and character of people. Polybius' overall theme is how and why the Romans spread their power as they did -- Publisher
