"Publius (or Gaius) Cornelius Tacitus (English pronunciation: /tæsts/; c. AD 56 ? 117) was a senator and a historian of the Roman Empire. The surviving portions of his two major works?the Annals and the Histories?examine the reigns of the Roman Emperors Tiberius, Claudius, Nero, and those who reigned in the Year of the Four Emperors (AD 69). These two works span the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus in AD 14 to the years of the First Jewish?Roman War in AD 70. There are substantial lacunae in the surviving texts, including a gap in the Annals that is four books long."--Wikipedia

4 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Titus Livius, often known as Livy in English, was a Roman historian who wrote a monumental history of Rome, Ab Urbe Condita, from its founding (traditionally dated to 753 BC) through the reign of Augustus in Livy's own time. Livy's writing style was poetic and archaic in contrast to Julius Caesar's and Cicero's styles. Also, he often wrote from the Romans' opponent's point of view in order to accent the Romans' virtues in their conquest of Italy and the Mediterranean. In keeping with his poetic tendencies, he did little to distinguish between fact and fiction
