From the Publisher
"This is the only anthology of translated primary readings that covers more than a millennium of Roman history, from Monarchy to Late Empire." – Daniel Solomon, Vanderbilt University

"Quite simply, there is no comparable work in the English language! I consider this to be a minor classic in the field of Greco-Roman historiography." - Timothy M. Thibodeau, Nazareth College of Rochester
