Perseus Texts Elsewhere


The Perseus Project was one of the great Web projects. Unfortunately as of July 1st 1998 it will begin to charge for access. There is no simple way to replicate its content. This page will try, however, to keep a running account of alternate sources for the texts, either originals or translations, on the Perseus site.
