'Cambridge University Press's splendid Greek and Latin Classics
series, known in the trade as the 'Green and Yellows', is now in
its fifth decade. The series adds to its lustre with these two very
different but equally outstanding commentaries ... each of which
shows remarkable standards of scholarship and criticism.
Publications such as this are real events in the world of
Classics.' The Times Literary Supplement
"..Tarrant's good (very good, in places) commentary deserves an ample readership." --Nicholas Horsfall, New England Classical Journal
