Cyril Bailey

Cyril BaileyIn existographies, Cyril Bailey (1871-1957) was a British philologist, Latin scholar, tending to focus on the works of Lucretius, Cicero, and Aristophanes, noted particularly for his 1947 popularly-used [e.g. Frank Copley (1977)] three-volume English translation of Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things, with prolegomena, critical apparatus, and commentary. [1]

In 1928, Bailey, in his The Greek Atomists and Epicurus, contrasts and compares the three main Greek atomic theorists: Leucippus, Democritus, and Epicurus, and discusses the general "atomic school" fervent in the years 430BC to 280BC. [2]
