“Time is the most valuable thing that a man can spend.”

Diogenes Laërtius

 

‘Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers’ is often considered the best Greco-Roman biography of notable philosophers. Written in the 3rd-century by Greek scholar Diogenes Laërtius, this work gives an account of the lives, studies, and sayings of Greek philosophers. Diogenes originally wrote ten distinct books covering Ionian and Italian philosophers – notable names include:

  • Solon
  • Socrates
  • Anacharsis
  • Xenophon
  • Cebes
  • Plato
  • Aristotle
  • Theophrastus
  • Menippus
  • Dionysius
  • Pythagoras
  • Xenophanes
  • Democritus
  • Pyrrho
  • Epicurus

 

This 1560 edition was published Marnef; however, the title page printer’s mark bears a notable similarity to that of Sebastien Gryphius, who published multiple editions of Diogenes both before and after this printing.
