Greek and Roman history has largely been reconstructed from the works of Herodotus, Thucydides, Livy, Tacitus, and other major authors who are today well represented in English translations. But much equally valuable documentary material is buried in inscriptions and papyri and in the works of Greek and Roman grammarians and scholars, and less well known historians and literary figures, of whose writings only isolated quotations have been preserved. Translated Documents of Greece and Rome has been planned to provide, above all, primary source material for the study of the classical world. It makes important historical documents available in English to scholars and students of classical history. The format of the translations is remarkable in attempting to reproduce faithfully the textual difficulties and uncertainties inherent in the documents, so that the reader without a knowledge of classical languages can assess the reliability of the various readings and interpretations. The author's purpose in compiling this book is to help the teaching of Hellenistic history at undergraduate and graduate level by providing students and teachers with a representative selection of accurately translated documents dealing with the political and social history of Greece and the Near and Middle East from c. 300 to c. 30 BC. The continuing vitality of the Greek cities in the Hellenistic period and the interaction of Greek and non-Greek cultures in the Near and Middle East after Alexander are the two themes to which the author pays particular attention. In accordance with the principles of this series, selections from readily available major authors such as Polybius and Plutarch have been excluded except where unavoidable. Instead the bulk of the selections have been drawn from papyrological and epigraphical sources, many of which have never been translated into English before. The texts include city decrees and regulations, royal letters and ordinances, records of embassies and judicial decisions, dedications, treaties, statue bases, and documents dealing with the establishment of festivals, dynastic and other religious cults, education and other endowments. Brief commentaries and bibliographical notes accompany each text. Students and teachers of ancient history and classical civilization will welcome this book. Those studying Jewish history and the historical background of early Christianity will also find it interesting.

The legends told by Roman chroniclers about the founding and the early history of the city cannot be regarded as sober narratives of real events. They rest on the insecure basis of oral tradition alone, for the written records perished at the sack of Rome by the Gauls in 390 B.C. Nor are the traditions in themselves so probable as to inspire belief. They give us, indeed, admirable pictures of old Roman ideals and institutions, but the personages and events portrayed in them are shadowy and unreal.-from "Chapter IV: The Regal Period"Originally intended as a university-level textbook, this history of the Roman civilization, written by two fellows and tutors at Oxford, is a crisp and refreshingly readable overview of the rise of Rome through the legendary reign of Julius Caesar, including his spectacular conquest of the Gauls.First published in 1896 and featuring numerous enlightening maps and illustrations, this essential primer focuses primarily on military and civic arenas, covering at the length the important and eventful wars of the Romans-including the Punic and Macedonian conflicts-and offering an excellent chronicle of the Roman army. The authors also describe, briefly but clearly, the development of the Roman constitution, the institutions of the Roman government, and the religious, political, social, and economic issues that predominated through the centuries.Here, in one concise, elegant volume, is the story of the civilization that is the root of our own.

Focusing on the emergence of Christianity and its suppression by the Romans in the first century, To The Death provides a riveting fictional account of the historical beginnings of Christianity. In the first century AD, the Jews of Jerusalem rebelled against Roman occupation. The result was one of the bloodiest wars in history. A million Jews died, and thousands starved to death. In 1500 BC, migrant Jews from Egypt invaded Canaan (Palestine) and murdered the entire population, claiming they were acting on a direct order from their God. At the end of the war, the treasures of the Jewish Temple were displayed in Rome, along with thouasnds of captive Jews who would be sold into slavery to celebrate the Roman victory.
