Topic: Latin Scientific Texts of the Early Empire. When we think of science in the Roman world (if we think of it at all), it is most often in the context of the Second Sophistic, when Galen and Ptolemy dominated the scene with scientific work written in Greek. But in fact, a closer look at the population of known "scientific" authors reveals a peak during the first century CE, especially for literature in Latin. Though many of these authors have not survived in text, they are partially preserved through a wealth of references and analyses from their more familiar literary contemporaries.

When Offered Spring.
