Obtaining a Translation of Aelius Aristides' Orations

Post by Arnold Braun » July 16th, 2017, 11:36 am

Hello,

I have been looking for an English translation of Aelius Aristides' Orations in the electronic format but was unable to find it. Do you know whether there is a scanned copy of the translation? A lot of translations of various ancient writers are available on archive.org, but there seems to be no available translation of Aristides' Orations.

I don't see anything in the public domain. Loeb's has a digital edition, you can see a certain number of pages for free, after that you have to pay.

Thank you for the link. It is always possible to find translations of Greek texts which are not free. It is not clear whether there is an older translation of Orations which is in the public domain. Since the Aristides is a well-known person, his writings might have been translated into the English language a long time ago.
