Volume 2.3 contains the Greek translations of books II-IV of the Conica of Apollonius of Perge. It is arranged according to the same principle as the previous volume on book I: the critical edition of the Greek text is accompanied by numerous notes and a lexicon of all mathematical terms. An introduction and a French translation provide further insights into the text. The final volume of the Greek books of the Conica will consist of the critical edition of Eutocius da (TM)Ascalona (TM)s commentary on the Conica, which will also include a French translation.
