This compilation contains 150 years worth of translations of the "Principal Doctrines" of Epicurus. Please document if you know of additional translations or find any inconsistencies. Several translators rely on the choices of earlier translations, so near-duplicates have been included (for example, O'Connor largely copies Hicks' translations and simply updates them with gender-neutral language).
