Traditionally attributed to Apollodorus of Athens, 'The Library' is a first or second century encyclopaedia of Greek mythology and heroic legends, written in a concise and unembellished style, closely following Greek literary sources. The extant text provides an important record of Greek accounts of the origin and early history of the world, preserving many otherwise lost mythological tales.
