Distinguished Australian Latinist Henry David Jocelyn was a character larger than life. He was warm hearted and amusing and extremely loyal to his friends, of whom there were many, and equally he inspired great affection and loyalty in those with whom he came into close contact. It may be some time before his achievements as one of the foremost Latin scholars of his time can be properly assessed, as his articles are scattered far and wide and in many cases difficult to access. A collection of some of his major pieces would reveal important contributions to the study of a very wide range of Latin authors, particularly but not exclusively of the Republic, and particularly in some of the less fashionable genres. Jocelyn also devoted an immense amount of time to reviews, of which he published more than 130 between 1965 and 1988. Many are of books on or editions of Republican Latin authors, particularly Plautus.
