STATIUS, Publius Papinius. 

Pub. Papinus [sic] Statius, denuo ac serio emendatus. 

First and only Jansson edition of the works of the first-century Roman poet Statius.  The volume opens with the Silvae, a collection of poems in five books addressed to patrons including the emperor Domitian, containing Statius’s famous lines on the death of a friend’s parrot.  His twelve-book epic hexameter poem the Thebaid follows, relating the quarrel between Oedipus’s sons Eteocles and Polyneices, and the collection ends with the unfinished Achilleid, telling the story of Achilles up to his departure for Troy, including his adventures on Scyros disguised as a girl.
