Bibliography

The standard edition of Gorgias's texts and fragments is Diels-Kranz (1952) (though see also MacDowell [1982] for the Helen). However, Diels-Kranz prints only the text of the Sextus Empiricus version of the On Not Being; Dillon and Gergel (2003) usefully give translations of both versions and a comprehensive assortment of other texts.
