Indeed, the editorial philosophy of the Loeb series is to be readable and avoid literalness, since those who care about the literal words are able to consult the facing Greek/Latin text.Bernd Strauss wrote: ↑December 28th, 2017, 5:54 pmThank you. Older translations are often less accurate than the newer. I find it helpful when a translation is not too paraphrastic and is literal enough (as are many translations from the Loeb Classical Library), since it is easier to match it to the Greek text.
