What are primary sources?

In scholarship, a distinction is made between primary and secondary sources. As their names suggest, the latter are derived from the former. For our purposes, primary sources are texts (as well as other media) that date to the ancient period, or which are substantially derived from such ancient texts. Secondary sources, by contrast, are modern essays, monographs and so on discussing the primary sources and their import.
