1. Homer, Iliad, 1.1 (8th cent. BCE - 7th cent. BCE)

1.1. /The wrath sing, goddess, of Peleus' son, Achilles, that destructive wrath which brought countless woes upon the Achaeans, and sent forth to Hades many valiant souls of heroes, and made them themselves spoil for dogs and every bird; thus the plan of Zeus came to fulfillment
2. Plato, Phaedrus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

259b. perhaps they will be pleased and give us the gift which the gods bestowed on them to give to men. Phaedrus. What is this gift? I don’t seem to have heard of it. Socrates. It is quite improper for a lover of the Muses never to have heard of such things. The story goes that these locusts were once men, before the birth of the Muses, and when the Muses were born and song appeared, some of the men were so overcome with delight
3. Aristotle, Poetics, None (4th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

4. Polybius, Histories, 12.27.2 (2nd cent. BCE - 2nd cent. BCE)

5. Anon., Rhetorica Ad Herennium, 1.13 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

6. Vergil, Aeneis, 1.8 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

8. Quintilian, Institutes of Oratory, 1.6, 2.5.19-2.5.20, 10.1.27-10.1.30, 10.1.32-10.1.36 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

2.5.19.  For my part I would have them read the best authors from the very beginning and never leave them, choosing those, however, who are simplest and most intelligible. For instance, when prescribing for boys, I should give Livy the preference over Sallust; for, although the latter is the greater historian, one requires to be well-advanced in one's studies to appreciate him properly. 2.5.20.  Cicero, in my opinion, provides pleasant reading for beginners and is sufficiently easy to understand: it is position not only to learn much from him, but to come to love him. After Cicero I should, following the advice of Livy, place such authors as most nearly resemble him.
9. Seneca The Younger, De Beneficiis, 1.4.5 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

10. Hermogenes, On Types of Style, 2.4 (2nd cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)
