This book presents the first comprehensive examination of derivative texts in ancient literature – genres such as the compendium, anthology, florilegium, commentary, and glossary. These genres are explained as manifestations of the more general phenomenon of auxiliary texts, whose primary function is to ensure the long-term availability, usability, and comprehensibility of important primary texts.
