Ancient literary authors:


            Homer:          use 883.1

            Sophocles:     use 882.2

            Euripides:      use 882.3

            Aeschylus:     use 882.1

            Virgil:             use 873.1

                        …and so on.

For most Greek and Latin authors, see what we have used in the past.  For those which are new to us, or for which we have few, use the current Dewey numbers and correct the old ones.
