Earthquake references abound in the literature of ancient Greece and Rome, found in many contexts, from a simple comment to detailed location and graphic description of a given event. There are a few writers who give the causes of earthquakes -- actual earthquake theories. This book gathers and organizes full quotations from ancient works containing such theory references. It is a small, interesting story in the history of science: the beginnings of theoretical seismology.
