Vettius Valens - The Anthology

Have you ever wished you could go back to ancient times? Vettius Valens lived over 2000 years ago, and wrote extensively on the art of reading astrological charts. Not only could Valens actually see the night sky, he also busied himself reading the texts of the ancients before his time. Throughout his nine book Anthology, Valens passes on many concepts he has synthesized from his studies, including a variety of examples from his collection. This book is highly unique to read, as it is translated from ancient Greek into modern English so the reader can literally fall into the mind of an ancient astrologer.

We are inviting you to join us on the journey to complete an easily digestible, technically sound English translation of a 9 book anthology written over 2000 years ago by the Hellenistic Astrologer Vettius Valens. With your help, Moira Press can fund the translation of the Anthologiae, including the costs it takes to research, translate, edit, and publish these works.
