Compendium of Roman history by Velleius Paterculus( Book )

27 editions published between 1924 and 2002 in English and Latin and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Velleius Paterculus wrote in two books 'Roman Histories', a summary of Roman history from the fall of Troy to AD 29. As he approached his own times he becomes much fuller in his treatment, especially between the death of Caesar in 44 BC and that of Augustus in AD 14. His work has useful concise essays on Roman colonies and provinces and some effective compressed portrayals of characters. In his 76th year (AD 13-14) the emperor Augustus wrote a dignified account of his public life, Res Gestae Divi Augusti, and work of which the best preserved copy (with a Greek translation) was engraved by the Galatians on the walls of the temple of Augustus at Ancyra (Ankara). It is a unique document giving short details of his public offices and honours; his benefactions to the empire, to the people, and to the soldiers; and his services as a soldier and as an administrator
The Roman history : from Romulus and the foundation of Rome to the reign of the Emperor Tiberius by Velleius Paterculus( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essential document for the study of Roman history traces the story of Rome from Romulus and the foundations of Rome to the reign of the Emperor Tiberius. It is especially valuable to historians and students for its vivid eyewitness account of the dramatic years that saw the Roman Empire emerge from the chaos left by the shattered Republic. Rendered with the non-specialist in mind, the translation-the first English language translation in nearly ninety years-seeks to remain faithful to the original while avoiding technical and obscure jargon. The volume includes a substantial introduction
