Browsing at the New Acquisitions Table

As the title states, I was just browsing at the new acquisitions table in the library. I noticed that they had the Bude addition of the Theriaka. Dennis: I'm assuming you have that available to you, but if not, let me know and I can copy any relevant sections for you. I also saw a fairly recent (2002) book by W. Clausen on the Aeneid with which I'm not familiar and whose subtitle is 'Decorum, Allusion, and Ideology'. Has anyone read any of it? Thoughts? For any Bryn Mawr readers in the Aeneid seminar: have you come across this book?

A couple other things of interest to me were a book on the 3rd century persecutions of Decius and Valerian and another collection called Early Christian Families in Context.

I appreciate the offer.

I do indeed have a copy of the Bude Nicander, curiously only volume two (Theriaca) with volume one (Alexipharmaca? fragments?) seemingly never to be published. Jacques even says somewhere to see the 'notice' of volume one on a certain point, but 3 years and counting there just ain't one.

I tried to get away with using Gow-Scholfield for so long, but Hamilton insisted I read Jacques. Now I carry it everywhere with me.
