While the text of this article appears to be pretty good, the "Sources" at the bottom have a funny smell to them. For example, there are a surprising number of editions published by the "Bristol Classical Press" listed. I'd be surprised if these editions are of the same quality as the OCL, Bude, or Teubner series. My inclination would be to refer the reader to the individual articles for critical editions of the primary texts, & only include secondary works, for example Hermann Bengtson, Introduction to Ancient History, 6th edition. translated by R.I. Frank & Frank D. Gilliard (Berkeley: University of California, 1970). It may be old, but its bibliography extensively covers German-language publications on ancient history up to the mid-1960s. -- llywrch (talk) 22:26, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
