Epitome of Roman history by Lucius Annaeus Florus( )

12 editions published between 1669 and 1983 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florius, born apparently in Africa, lived in Spain and in Rome in Hadrian's time. He wrote, in brief pointed rhetorical style, a summary of Roman history (especially wars) in two books in order to show the greatness and decline of Roman morals. It was perhaps planned to reach his own times, but the extant work ends with Augustus' reign (30 BC-AD 14). This Epitome is a useful rapid sketch of Roman military history. -- jacket
