VALENS - ANTHOLOGIES (New Edition of Riley's Translation)

With approval from Mr. Riley, I have made new edition of his translation.
I have made few changes.
First, I removed the references to the Critical Editions
and put them in footnotes.
Second, I replaced “< >” with “[ ]”.
For me, it is much cleaner that way.
I also put colorful tables and bookmarks.
So this is what is done in this first edition.
I hope I will have more time in the future
and put charts of all of Valens’ examples
and also make few more changes with purpose for more enjoyable reading of this classic book.



P.S. I first made this for my personal use, but then I thought why not share it,
someone may find it useful.
I am sure if I have more time to spend on it, it will look much better.

Also, Mr. Riley asked me to share this with you:

“Just be sure to remind them
that there may be some mistakes in the translation, especially in the mathematical sections.
I was as accurate as I could be, but
I may have misunderstood some passages”.
