So this just came down the pre-pub pipeline:

https://www.logos.com/product/46941/select-works-and-studies-on-plotinus

Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, it's just an (antiquated) translation of Plotinus' Enneads, but no Greek anywhere to be found.

The product description promises:

Logos allows you to study Plotinus with unparalleled depth and efficiency. See Greek gloss and morphology with a click. Gather further clarification by instantly jumping to lexicons and dictionaries. Compare the Enneads’ Greek text and English translations, scrolling side by side in sync. Logos applies the most advanced tools to the best texts, so you get the most out of your study.

  • Presents Plotinus’ Enneads in Greek
  • Includes two English translations of the Enneads
  • Offers two analyses of Plotinus’ philosophy and wisdom

I'm not sure who wrote the product description, but that certainly doesn't match what I just downloaded...

Any thoughts?

I'm glad you pointed that out. I was just assuming and had designated this collection for later study. It does not look like there's any Greek text here at all.

The described volumes are all english; no greek in the example JPGs.  So, I thought, maybe they re-used another resource that DID have greek glosses and morphology, etc.  But none that I can see.  It sure looks mysterious.  Maybe they switched horses, mid-stream.

Yeah, I need to consider returning this. Sad

Just a thought as this happened on a Verbum productt -- the Greek text would have been split out as a separate resource. They may have forgotten to include it when they distributed the package. Someone should call and report back here.

Well, no reply from anyone at Logos, but they did accept to process my return.

A shame, since I'd been waiting years to finally get the Greek!

Hi everyone, thanks for bringing this to our attention.  We are looking into it and I'll report back in the coming days when I know more.
