    The following 108 works from the listed authors within the online version of the Loeb Classical Library (with synoptic original Greek and Latin texts and English translations) contain the word “suicide” on the English side. It’s clear that not all of them would contain relevant passages on the ethics of suicide, but some of them undoubtedly do (presumably more in philosophical treatises than in histories). Unfortunately, the Loeb Classical Library is not available online at the U of U, but the individual books could be consulted. It might even be worth it for someone to come down to the BYU Library, where the LCL is available online, to check the quickly accessible quotes for each (or otherwise obtain user permission):
