The antiquities of Egypt : a translation with notes of book I of the Library of history, of Diodorus Siculus by Diodorus( Book )

106 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition, one of the BCP Classics Companion Series, provides a translation and detailed commentary of the Greek and Macedonian narrative of Diodorus Book XVI. An outstanding general, statesman and diplomat, Philip II inherited a kingdom near collapse and transformed it into the greatest power in the Mediterranean world. But for all its significance, his reign is badly served by the surviving writers of Greek literature. The loss of the major contemporary historians has left us dependent for our knowledge on the speeches of the Attic orators, especially the hostile Demosthenes, and on the 16th Book of Diodorus Siculus, who though he lived some 300 years later, has bequeathed the only detailed account of Philip's reign in Macedonia and the Greek mainland
Secret history by Procopius( Book )

19 editions published between 1961 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By exposing the perversion, repression, corruption, and injustice at the heart of Justinian's regime, Prokopios' The Secret History destroyed forever that emperor's reputation as the great and benevolent ruler of a vast Byzantine state. Faithfully rendered here in blunt and idiomatic English, Prokopios' tell-all is as shocking today as it was in the sixth century. Kaldellis' substantial Introduction addresses, among other topics, the historical background to The Secret History; Prokopios' literary style and major themes; and the relationships between Prokopios, Justinian, and Empress Theodora. Maps, genealogies, a glossary, and a selection of related texts enhance and support the reading

Prokops "Geheimgeschichte" ist eine chronique scandaleuse mit pikant-erotischem Inhalt. Kaiser Justinian erhält in diesem Werk eine wahre Teufelsfratze: Habgier, Misswirtschaft, willkürliche Unterdrückungsmaßnahmen, Grausamkeit, Mordlust und Versklavung prägen seine Regentschaft (527-565). Schonungslos prangert der Autor auch das sittenlose Leben von Kaiserin Theodora an und kritisiert Belisar, den berühmten Feldherrn das Kaisers. Mit Erläuterungen, einer Einführung und Literaturhinweisen von Mischa Meier und Hartmut Leppin
