Moral Sayings of Publius Syrus
Data Set Description Summary
This book is a collection of the known sayings of Publius Syrus.
“Time has wrought Syrus a singular destiny, building up for him a second reputation on the ruins of a first. Of his plays, which were the admiration of the Romans, the ages have brought down to us only a few sayings which were dispersed through them. The sayings were for that age of secondary consideration. They are now his chief performance. Thus deprived of the glory he once had, he has conquered another, and the once celebrated dramatist has become posterity’s famous gnomic poet.”
