Bibliotheke

The Bibliotheke was renowned as the chief work of Apollodorus, a 2nd-century B.C. Greek historian and scholar. The title means Library and is the single most valuable source on Greek mythology. However, the text itself dates back to the century between 100 and 200 A.D., which means that although Apollodorus is cited, the text must have been composed by someone else.
