About

The Classics wing of Oxford Scholarly Editions Online (OSEO) currently includes texts and translations of all the major Latin authors — from Horace, Ovid, and Virgil, to Pliny The Younger, Plautus, Sallust, and Tacitus — as well as the Greek tragedians Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, comedians Menander and Aristophanes, and philosophers Plato and Aristotle . You can discover over 370 editions of Classical authors — volumes from the Oxford Classical Texts series, translations of all the major works, and separate editions and commentaries.

The digital presentation of the editions enables readers to search across the texts in simple but intelligent ways; navigate using familiar reference forms (Virg. Aen. 2.49 is a single search away), read texts and translations side by side, and look up words in the Oxford Latin Dictionary — the leading Latin dictionary exclusive to OSEO — with our dictionary widget.

The addition of Plato’s works in January 2019 added fully integrated Stephanus numbers and when Aristotle's works were added in January 2020 this was fully integrated with Bekker numbers.
