Public Domain Plato with Stephanus Pagination.

Posted by | Chris | 1.3.11 | 4 Comments


There are many public domain texts of Plato's works but almost none of them have the Stephanus pagination, making them useless for citations. Perseus Digital Library is an excellent resource with Stephanus numbers and side by side Greek text, but it's browser only format makes it difficult to read.

Prompted by this I have collected two English translations of Plato's Timaeus and the original Greek. I have used Benjamin Jowett's 1871 translation available from Project Gutenberg, W.R.M. Lamb's 1925 translation available from Perseus and the Greek also from Perseus.

I'm aware that Jowett's translation is not highly regarded. I can't find any comment on Lamb's. However, both are available for free and side by side with the Greek they at least give a place to start in a study of the Timaeus.

The document is available to download as a PDF here. This is a first edit for which I have not fully checked. A properly corrected version will follow.

    This is very helpful, thank you. I'm sure it's too much to ask...but if you could do the same thing for the Republic, and use the Latin transliteration for the Greek, then I would be eternally grateful.
