Wars of the Romans in Iberia : Iberike by Appianus( Book )

169 editions published between 1477 and 2004 in 11 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appian wrote his Roman History in the second century AD as a series of books arranged geographically to chronicle the rise of the Roman empire. His Iberike, of which this is the first translation with historical commentary in English, deals with the Romans' wars in the Iberian peninsula from the third to the first centuries BC. It is the only continuous source for much of the history of this crucial period in one of the earliest regions of Rome's imperial expansion and so fills in the gap made by the loss of Livy's later books. He describes the major campaigns of the conquest from the defeat of the Carthaginians by Scipio Africanus, the wars against the Celtiberians the war against the Lusitanians under Virathus and the seige of Numantia. But its value is more than that of a mere chronicler of otherwise obscure events, he was an historian who deserves to be studied in his own right." --Book Jacket
Histoire romaine by Appianus( Book )

63 editions published between 1850 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le récit se divise en deux grandes parties. La première couvre la période allant des lendemains de Philippes jusqu'à la conclusion de la paix de Baïes (novembre 42-39 av. J.-C.). Ces années furent marquées par la guerre de Pérouse, qui opposa le jeune César à Lucius Antonius, frère d'Antoine (II, 4- LXXVI, 324). La seconde période, allant de la rupture de cette paix jusqu'à la mort de Sextus Pompée (39-35 av. J.-C.), est centrée sur la guerre de Sicile, qui opposa César au dernier fils du Grand Pompée (LXXVII, 325- CXLIV, 600). Dans une conclusion tout aussi brève (CXLV, 602), Appien rappelle que les guerres menées ensuite par le jeune César en Illyrie avaient été traitées séparément dans le livre Illyrien, appendice du Livre Macédonien. Le Livre V étant le dernier de la série des Guerres Civiles, Appien prend soin d'avertir son lecteur de l'approche du dénouement. La bataille d'Actium est annoncée à plusieurs reprises. Ainsi, à la fin de la guerre de Sicile, les ambassadeurs de Sextus Pompée conseillent à Antoine d'accepter les services du vaincu, en faisant valoir qu'il disposera ainsi d'un "parti suffisamment puissant pour la guerre à venir, laquelle était imminente". Négociant avec Furnius les conditions de sa reddition, Pompée expliquait lui-même que, si Antoine faisait l'erreur de le combattre, c'était qu'il "ne prévoyait pas la guerre qui le menaçait". Dès la préface, Appien suggérait d'ailleurs les conséquences désastreuses de la rupture en qualifiant de fatale la passion d'Antoine pour Cléopâtre. Par de telles prolepses, le livre V annonce et prépare les Égyptiaques, livres perdus dans lesquels étaient relatées les opérations qui avaient abouti à la réduction de l'Égypte en province romaine et à l'instauration de la monarchie. L'ensemble du livre V est placé sous le signe du Destin. Maintenu dans l'attente du combat final entre César et Antoine, le lecteur voit les triumvirs conclure entre eux des accords éphémères et assiste à l'agitation inutile de personnages en sursis. Pour Appien, l'Histoire est un processus linéaire dans lequel les événements s'enchaînent et s'orientent vers un résultat prédéterminé par le Destin : le retour de la monarchie, annoncé par les devins étrusques dès l'époque de Sylla, approche enfin et le jeune César, quoi qu'il fasse, en sera l'instrument, la fin concomitante de la monarchie des Lagides, la dernière héritière d'Alexandre, confirmant sans doute que l'Empire du monde était définitivement passé des Macédoniens aux Romains

The civil wars by Appianus( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Appian's Civil Wars offers a masterly account of the turbulent epoch from the time of Tiberius Gracchus (133 BC) to the tremendous conflicts which followed the murder of Julius Caesar. For the events between 133 and 70 BC he is the only surviving continuous narrative source. The subsequent books vividly describe Catiline's conspiracy, the rise and fall of the First Triumvirate, and Caesar's crossing of the Rubicon, defeat of Pompey and untimely death. The climax comes with the birth of the Second Triumvirate out of anarchy, the terrible purges of Proscriptions which followed, and the titanic struggle for world mastery which was only to end with Augustus's defeat of Antony and Cleopatra
