"Diodoros of Sicily lived and worked in the last century before Christ (c.90-c.30 or c.20). He witnessed the rise of Rome to supremacy, the eclipse of Greek empires in the east, and the unification of the inhabited world (the oikoumene) under Roman dominance, especially through the conquests of Pompey the Great and Julius Caesar. At some point in his life Diodoros conceived the ambition of writing a history of the world from its mythical beginnings to his own day. For that purpose he read and studied the works of his great predecessors in historiography, Herodotos, Thucydides, Xenophon, Ephoros, Theopompos, Polybios, Poseidonios and many lesser known authors. Over thirty years of labour he produced an encyclopedic compendium of world history in 40 books, which he called the Library (Bibliotheke). Writing in the dying days of Greek historiography, he was uniquely positioned to survey and summarise the continuum of history"--
The Persian wars to the fall of Athens : books 11-14.34 (480-401 BCE) by Diodorus( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2021 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Only one surviving source provides a continuous narrative of Greek history from Xerxes' invasion to the Wars of the Successors following the death of Alexander the Great - the Bibliotheke, or "Library," produced by Sicilian historian Diodorus Siculus (ca. 90-30 BCE). Yet generations of scholars have disdained Diodorus as a spectacularly unintelligent copyist who only reproduced, and often mangled, the works of earlier historians. Arguing for a thorough critical reappraisal of Diodorus as a minor but far from idiotic historian himself, Peter Green published Diodorus Siculus, Books 11-12.37.1, a fresh translation, with extensive commentary, of the portion of Diodorus's history dealing with the period 480-431 BCE, the so-called "Golden Age" of Athens." "This is the only recent modern English translation of the Bibliotheke in existence. In the present volume - the first of two covering Diodorus's text up to the death of Alexander - Green expands his translation of Diodorus up to Athens' defeat after the Peloponnesian War. In contrast to the full scholarly apparatus in his earlier volume (the translation of which is incorporated) the present volume's purpose is to give students, teachers, and general readers an accessible version of Diodorus's history. Its introduction and notes are especially designed for this audience and provide an up-to-date overview of fifth-century Greece during the years that saw the unparalleled flowering of drama, architecture, philosophy, historiography, and the visual arts for which Greece still remains famous."--Jacket
Diodorus Siculus, books 11-12.37.1 : Greek history 480-431 B.C., the alternative version by Diodorus( )

Sicilian historian Diodorus Siculus (ca. 100-30 BCE) is our only surviving source for a continuous narrative of Greek history from Xerxes' invasion to the Wars of the Successors following the death of Alexander the Great. Yet this important historian has been consistently denigrated as a mere copyist who slavishly reproduced the works of earlier historians without understanding what he was writing. By contrast, in this iconoclastic work Peter Green builds a convincing case for Diodorus' merits as a historian. Through a fresh English translation of a key portion of his multi-volume history (the so-called Bibliotheke, or "Library") and a commentary and notes that refute earlier assessments of Diodorus, Green offers a fairer, better balanced estimate of this much-maligned historian. The portion of Diodorus' history translated here covers the period 480-431 BCE, from the Persian invasion of Greece to the outbreak of the Peloponnesian War. This half-century, known as the Pentekontaetia, was the Golden Age of Periclean Athens, a time of unprecedented achievement in drama, architecture, philosophy, historiography, and the visual arts. Green's accompanying notes and commentary revisit longstanding debates about historical inconsistencies in Diodorus' work and offer thought-provoking new interpretations and conclusions
