PLUTARCH'S LIFE OF POMPEY

Translated by A. H. Clough


Edited by Ulysses K. Vestal



Part I - From Youth to his First Consulship, 106-67 BC [1-23]

Part II - The Eastern Campaigns, 67-62 BC [24-42]

Part III - From the Return to Rome to Civil War, 62-48 BC [43-80]

Part IV - Comparison Between Pompey and Agesilaus:  Plutarch's Life of Pompey is part of a larger work, the Parallel Lives of Famous Greeks and Romans.  Each pair of Lives concluded with a comparison, which typically is not included in popular translations, i.e. the various Penguin compilations. In the case of Pompey, Plutarch paired his biography with a Life of Agesilaus.

I have amended Clough's language hic et illic [“here and there”] with modern usages, but otherwise I have left his translation unchanged.  The Greek text consulted in these minor editorial changes was that of the LCL.
