Stobaeus: Loci Communes Sacri et Profani
Loci Communes Sacri et Profani by Stobaeus (1581)
This huge and astounding book by Stobaeus, here in the so-called "Frankfurt" edition, has facing Greek text and Latin translation which makes it perhaps the most useful edition for readers of this blog. For a discussion of Stobaeus, an altogether mysterious figure who lived perhaps in the fifth century, see this Wikipedia article.
For the Latin-only edition of Conrad Gessner of 1551, see the Sententiae by Stobaeus.
