Good news. I have today received the first draft of the translation of “February” from John the Lydian’s On the months (De mensibus) book 4. It’s a cracker. How this text has avoided being translated before I do not know. The footnotes added by the translator are also very, very useful. To read this stuff is a liberal education. I will post the final version online when it is ready.
Also in the works is a translation of a curious text on the Seven Sages, attributed to Athanasius but in reality part of the gnomological tradition. In this the sages predict the coming of Christ. I have the PDF, but need a Word document so that I can post it here. It’s a useful piece, showing how the Greeks in the Middle Ages created a rival “pagan prophets of Jesus” tradition to stand alongside the Jewish prophecies in the Old Testament.
