Hesiod

Author Code: CHES

Born: c. 780 BC (?) - Ascra, Boetia, Greece (?)

Died: c. 700 BC (?) - Locris, Greece (?)

Little is known of Hesiod's life apart from what has come down to us in his extant works. He is thought to have lived in the province of Boetia and was murdered in Locris. His main work Works and Days describes the five Ages of Man and provides advice on everyday conduct. Hesiod is also said to have written the Theogony, a description of the origins of the world and a genealogy of the gods. Other works attributed to him include Catalogues of Women and The Shield of Heracles, both of which are genealogical in nature.
