One of the foremost scholars of his day, the German classicist
August Boeckh (1785-1867) was chosen by the Berlin Academy of
Sciences as the first editor of the monumental Corpus inscriptionum
graecarum. Before that he had published this groundbreaking edition
of the extant works of the Greek poet Pindar (c.522-c.443 BCE) in
two volumes, the second being split into two parts. The first
volume, published in 1811, contains the only complete surviving
works of Pindar, the victory odes (Epinikia). In addition to the
editor's Latin preface and critical notes, this volume also
includes his important treatise on Pindarian metrics, De metris
Pindari, in which he establishes a close connection between Greek
music and verse. The first part of the second volume (published in
1819) comprises Greek scholia, and the second part (1821) contains
the editor's Latin translations and commentary, as well as other
fragments and indexes.
