Overview

A second century Greek official of Alexandria, Appian wrote twenty-four books of ‘Roman History’, eleven of which have survived complete. Exploring conquests from Rome’s earliest beginnings to the times of Trajan, Appian’s great work continues to be regarded as a valuable source of information on historical events that would otherwise have been lost long ago. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Appian’s complete extant works, with beautiful illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
