  1. Seeing the Face, Seeing the Soul: Polemon's Physiognomy From Classical Antiquity to Medieval Islam.Simon Swain (ed.) - 2007 - Oxford University Press.
    Polemon of Laodicea's Physiognomy explains how to detect someone's character from their appearance. The original 2nd-century text has been lost, but this collection of essays presents translations of the surviving Greek, Latin, and Arabic versions together with a series of masterly studies on the Physiognomy's origins, function, and legacy.
