https://www.logos.com/product/37045/works-of-philo shows green for a bid of $31.00 and that bidding will end next week. It has not hit the line yet. How can it be closing? Why would $31.00 be the winning bid when so few placed it?

The product seems like it would be very nice to have and I would love to see the bidding lower so maybe we can just get it lowered.

Thanks

The green just means that your bid will succeed. Any bid over $30 will be green.

I understand that but it does not explain. Your picture, thanks for getting a better one, shows clearly that $30.00 is the projected winner but it is yellow. Also the 30 and 31 (and all other numbers) never hit the line.

SHotchkiss:

I wonder if it did in fact hit the line when the date was announced but when the emails went out informing those who had placed a bid, some of them pulled out.

I just checked and my $30 bid is green.

I am in the green too.

How is this 1920's-1930's version better than this 1995 version?

This version clues the Greek.  

Were the Loeb version translators were better?

Anything else?

I'm also curious. Besides the Greek, why else would one want this?

I have the one that came with the standard base package

If I am not mistaken, the Hendrickson edition is a print of the translation done by C. D. Yonge (1812-1892).  The forward of the book from Hendrikson provides an excellent overview of Yonge's work and his sources and also mentions the Loeb series.  Basically, it appears that Yonge's translation is older while the Loeb translation used a better underlying Greek manuscript.  You can read the forward at the popular on-line booksellers website.

Hope that helps.
