    Aims and Scope

    In this work, Aelianus shows us what people found remarkable about animals in antiquity. We encounter mosquitoes and elephants along with love-crazed fish and marvelous unicorns. The work is a gold mine for citations from ancient literature that would otherwise be lost. Above all, it is a treasure trove of animal stories, which will appeal not only to readers interested in antiquity but, more broadly, to all animal lovers.
