For a selection of readings from Josephus, I agree regarding his descriptions of the various sects of Judaism (in War and Antiquities). I found Antiquities easier, possibly because a lot of the subject matter was familiar. Of course, the Testimonium Flavianum is crucial. I might also include his descriptions of other messianic figures. Life is good. Apion is not quite as interesting; it's harder (polished), too.
, I have decided that section 12. (60) is perhaps the place to start in Against Apion. The English is....Against Apion
As for ourselves, therefore, we neither inhabit a maritime country, nor do we delight in merchandise, nor in such a mixture with other men as arises from it; but the cities we dwell in are remote from the sea, and having a fruitful country for our habitation, we take pains in cultivating that only.

When I open my Logos Josephus texts, I have to have three lines of text, all above each other: (1. The Greek word, 2. The parsing, 3. The lemma of the Greek word found in the lexicon.); the same case exists for Philo and the Pseudepigrapha. Perhaps sometime, Logos will decide to offer an only Greek text for Josephus, Philo, the Pseudepigrapha -- but for now, Logos says I only need something close to an interlinear. (So the current situation is that if you as a Logos customer want to read Josephus, forget it. ... Logos falls flat on Josephus, Philo, and the Pseudepigrapha for students of Greek who want a text of only the Greek. You cannot get a Greek-only text to read -- If you want to read Josephus, or the Pseudepigrapha, or Philo in a continuous Greek text on the Logos platform, you are not able to do this.
It is amazing that such an advanced company that seeks to fulfill the requests of students of NT Greek and the ancillary texts falls flat on its face -- it cannot even give a student of Greek a pure (Greek only text). I think that says a lot about Logos and who they consider their constituency to be. I find this very disturbing, for a company that wants me to pay dollars each month for access to basically an interlinear. What are they thinking?
