Founded in 1873, Hermathena has served as one of the longest-running authorities on classical language, literature, and civilizations. This Trinity College Dublin publication includes articles on a variety of classical inquiries from societies of the Mediterranean and Near East written by esteemed scholars and editors in the field. Hermathema’s special editions, which are often centered around a particular figure or topic of interest, have included themes such as Platonism, Ovid’s “Metamorphoses”, and Renaissance Greek.

Some of my favorites from Hermathena:

The unity of the “Travels”

War then and now: the legacy of ancient Greek tragedy

On the Fixed Alexandrine Year

Greek and Latin Etymology in England
