Tom Hercules Davies

Lecturer in Classics and Archaeology
University of Melbourne

I'm a comparative philologist and historian of philosophy. I work mostly with texts, mostly in Greek, Latin, Egyptian, Akkadian, Avestan, Sanskrit, and the medieval Germanic languages. I'm interested in philosophy and poetry recorded in these languages, and especially in connections between traditions. I'm also interested in the development of intellectual professions in the ancient world.

I'm currently (June 2024) transferring my site and domain name away from Wix, so this site may not be functioning fully! The new site is live here, and should be at within a week.
