Priapeia
Catalog #: SKU3136

Illustrated by TGS Publishing with 30 period illustrations from or about ancient Rome, Pompeii
The Priapeia, now for the first time literally and completely translated into English verse and prose, is a collection of short Latin poems in the shape of jocose epigrams affixed to the statues of the god Priapus. These were often rude carvings from a tree-trunk, human-shaped, with a huge phallus which could at need be used as a cudgel against robbers, and they were placed in the gardens of wealthy Romans, for the twofold purpose of promoting fertility and of preventing depredations on the produce.

Catalog #: SKU2851

Epea Pteroenta, presumed to be Greek, has no real meaning in the language. The two words are never used separately. In old translations it is always translated as 'words with wings,' but finds no justification in the Greek for that translation. The book is about the mystery and revelations of what or how words are used and the original meaning or usage.
