Sometimes called the "Christian Herodotus" and often referred to as the "Father of ecclesiastical history," Eusebius (A.D. 263-339) has earned legitimate fame as the historian of Christian antiquity.

The poems of Catullus by Gaius Valerius Catullus( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in Latin and English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catullus, who lived during some of the most interesting and tumultuous years of the late Roman Republic, spent his short but intense life (?84-54 B.C.E) in high Roman society, rubbing shoulders with various cultural and political luminaries including Cesar, Cicero, and Pompey, Catullus's poetry is by turns ribald, lyric, romantic, satirical; sometimes obscene and always intelligent, it offers us vivid pictures of the poet's friends, enemies, and lovers. The verses to his friends are bitchy, funny, and affectionate; those to his enemies are often wonderfully nasty. Many poems brilliantly evoke his passionate affair with Lesbia, often identified as Clodia Metelli, a femme fatale ten years his senior and the smart adulterous wife of an arrogant aristocrat, who Cicero later claimed she poisoned." "This new bilingual translation of Catullus's surviving poems by Peter Green adheres to the principle that the rhythm of a poem, whether familiar or not, is among the most crucial elements for its full appreciation. Green has therefore translated all the poems - lyric, elegiac, choliambic - into stress equivalents of the original meters, and each poem appears opposite its Latin original. He also provides an essay on the poet's life and literary background, a historical sketch of the politically fraught late Roman Republic in which Catullus lived, copious notes on the poems, a wide-ranging bibliography for further reading, and a full glossary. This edition is thus designed to bring the great pleasures of these poems to as wide an audience as possible."--Jacket
The fall of Jerusalem by Flavius Josephus( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Histoire secrète by Procopius( Book )

9 editions published between 1966 and 2004 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procopius, who also wrote a mainstream military history and a toadying description of the monuments which Justinian built, had to keep his most acute writing for posthumous publication. This text flays Justinian and Theodora as corrupt, immoral, and just plain evil. Even though the account sounds fantastic, it is considered genuine by modern historians (but not necessarily accurate). Of course, the Eastern Orthodox Church considers Justinian a saint, so you'll either love or hate this book. The original title of this work was Anecdota, which means 'things not given over, withheld.' Procopius speculates that Justinian might have been something ... not even human, perhaps vampiric. He soberly quotes eyewitness accounts of Justinian shapeshifting into a 'shapeless mass of flesh, ' and literally losing, and retrieving, his head (p. 132). It sounds just like a modern horror movie special effect. ... In another place, the translation has Justinian killing a 'trillion' people. The text actually says "A myriad myriads of myriads" (a myriad is the highest number in Greek, 10,000)
