Representing the Argonautica

8 volumes

The Argonautica is a myth of travel, love, seamonsters and ships, told for many centuries and by many authors in the ancient Greek and Roman Mediterranean. Among the authors who told versions of the story are Apollonius of Rhodes, who wrote for the Ptolemaic Greeks who ruled Egypt some 2300 years ago; Valerius Flaccus, who dedicated his version to the Roman emperor Vespasian in the 1st century AD: and the Orphic Argonautica, written in the 5th or 6th century AD, an account informed by magic and mystery.

The Representing the Argonautica collection gathers different Argonauticas into one digital space, including different editions of each of these authors and modern scholarly commentaries on the ancient texts. An English language version of the Orphic Argonautica can be found online at this link.
