This website does not at the moment have its onw talkback section or forums. If you would like to discuss Aeneas Tacticus, please go to his fanpage on facebook.

I am open for suggestions of Aeneas-related content for this website.

  • Do you know of any material online which should be linked on this site?
  • Have you written something on Aeneas which you'd like to showcase here?
  • Do you know of a really good student project on Aeneas (or on a passage in Aeneas) which might find room here?
  • Do you know of anyone who has tried any of Aeneas' suggestions (in the real world or in a virtual form) and documented their activity in some way?

I am particularly looking for illustrations - serious, technical ones, but some passages could also do with an interpretation by a gifted cartoonist. If anybody would like to have a go, please get in touch with me.

NB: I reserve full editorial control. This website is supposed to be fun, but it aims at high quality. I reserve the right to refuse any suggestions on these or any other grounds.

A note on ancient Greek:
Due to the difficulties in displaying ancient Greek with all the correct accents in a form that everybody can read, this website started off keeping Greek at a bare minimum, and where individual words in Greek are used, these will be transliterated (usually without indicating long vowels and accents).
Please refer to the bibliography for a list of editions which include the Greek text of Aeneas' work. The text is also available online at the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (subject to subscription).

It is hoped that we can soon provide a unicode version of the Greek text. Watch this space.
