Pithos Classics Journal

The Classics Students Association is pleased to present Pithos, the San Francisco State University students' Classics Journal. 

"It is an easy pattern to fall into to compare our own civilization with those of the ancient Greeks and Romans and to seek out the similarities between ours and theirs..."

— Adriana Javier, former Editor-In-Chief
