Appian's Roman history by Appianus( Book )

114 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Appian (first-second century CE), a Greek from Antioch, offers a history of the rise of Rome but often shows us events from the point of view of the conquered peoples. Books on the Spanish, Hannibalic, Punic, Illyrian, Syrian, Mythridatic, and Civil wars are extant. Appian (Appianus) was a Greek official of Alexandria. He saw the Jewish rebellion of 116 CE, and later became a Roman citizen and advocate and received the rank of eques (knight). In his older years he held a procuratorship. He died during the reign of Antoninus Pius who was emperor 138-161 CE. Honest admirer of the Roman empire though ignorant of the institutions of the earlier Roman republic, he wrote, in the simple "common" dialect, 24 books of "Roman affairs," in fact conquests, from the beginnings to the times of Trajan (emperor 98-117 CE). Eleven have come down to us complete, or nearly so, namely those on the Spanish, Hannibalic, Punic, Illyrian, Syrian, and Mithridatic wars, and five books on the Civil Wars. They are valuable records of military history. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Appian is in four volumes

Caesar und Labienus : Geschichte einer tödlichen Kameradschaft : Caesars Karriere als Feldherr im Spiegel der Kommentarien sowie bei Cassius Dio, Appianus und Lucanus by Meinhard-Wilhelm Schulz( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in German and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Labienus was undoubtedly Caesar's best officer in the Gallic Wars, but to describe him as Caesar's equal sounds improbable: who can really care much for him, this "traitor" who "defected" to Pompey ... The author has spent years studying and thoroughly re-evaluating all the commentaries, with surprising results: Caesar's own description of events in fact contradicts the image of him prevalent since the time of Mommsen. He was not the infallible commander, but allowed mistake after mistake. Without "his" Labienus, death and destruction would certainly have been his lot in the Gallic Wars, where Labienus was, in Caesar's own words, his equal, his superior even, as a commander. Caesar could not and would not accept this for long, and humiliatingly relegated Labienus to the general staff; in what we may assume were revisions to his commentaries he then cut back to a bare minimum the references to his officer's grand strategic achievements, and in the Civil War wrote only with hatred of his once closest comrade, thus founding a tradition poisoned against Labienus. The drama of this love-hate relationship ended at the Battle of Munda, but Caesar would outlive Labienus by only one year. In Caesar und Labienus, both commanders are given the justice they deserve."--Publisher's website
