Valens, AnthologyDuring this podcast I discuss the recent release of a full English translation of the Anthology of Vettius Valens by Mark Riley.

Riley, who is a retired classics scholar from California, unexpectedly released a full preliminary translation of the entire Anthology online for free in early December.

He had completed the translation in the mid-90’s when he was still doing work on ancient astrology, but has since moved on, and never got around to publishing the text, until now.

During this impromptu show I discuss the importance of the release of this text, and I provide an overview of the life and work of Valens.

You can read more about the release of the Anthology and find a link to the translation in an article I wrote on the Hellenistic astrology website.
