Dio's Roman history by Cassius Dio Cocceianus( Book )

18 editions published between 1914 and 2015 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the eighty books of Dio's great work Roman History, covering the era from the legendary landing of Aeneas in Italy to the reign of Alexander Severus, we possess Books 36-60 (36 and 55-60 have gaps), which cover the years 68 BC - AD 47). The missing portions are partly supplied, for the earlier gaps by Zonaras, who relies closely on Dio, and for some later gaps (Book 35 onwards) by John Xiphilinus (of the eleventh century). There are also many excerpts. The facilities for research afforded by Dio's official duties and his own industry make him a very vital source for Roman history of the last years of the republic and the first four emperors. -- jacket

The ninth of 80 books published over 22 years, this volume of Cassius Dio's Roman History includes the earliest complete account of the Great Fire of Rome occurring on July 19, 64 AD. According to historic accounts like Dio's, the fire spread quickly and burned for six days. Only four of the 14 Roman districts escaped the flames, and three districts were completely destroyed. According to Dio and other historians, Nero, the emperor at the time, sent men out to set fire to the city and sang "The Sack of Troy" while playing his lyre as Rome was consumed in flames

The Roman antiquities of Dionysius of Halicarnassus by Dionysius( Book )

5 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dionysius of Halicarnassus was born before 53 BCE and went to Italy before 29 BCE. He taught rhetoric in Rome while studying the Latin language, collecting material for a history of Rome, and writing. His Roman Antiquities began to appear in 7 BCE. Dionysius states that his objects in writing history were to please lovers of noble deeds and to repay the benefits he had enjoyed in Rome. But he wrote also to reconcile Greeks to Roman rule. Of the 20 books of Roman Antiquities (from the earliest times to 264 BCE) we have the first 9 complete; most of 10 and 11; and later extracts and an epitome of the whole. Dionysius studied the best available literary sources (mainly annalistic and other historians) and possibly some public documents. His work and that of Livy are our only continuous and detailed independent narratives of early Roman history. Dionysius was author also of essays on literature covering rhetoric, Greek oratory, Thucydides, and how to imitate the best models in literature. The Loeb Classical Library publishes a two-volume edition of the critical essays; the edition of Roman Antiquities is in seven volumes. "--Loeb

The main aim of Dionysius of Halicarnassus' Roman Antiquities, which began to appear in 7 BCE, was to reconcile Greeks to Roman rule.

Dio Cassius (Cassius Dio), ca. 150- 235 CE, was born at Nicaea in Bithynia in Asia Minor. On the death of his father (Roman governor of Cilicia) he went in 180 to Rome, entered the Senate, and under the emperor Commodus was an advocate. He held high offices, becoming a close friend of several emperors. He was made governor of Pergamum and Smyrna; consul in 220; proconsul of Africa; governor of Dalmatia and then of Pannonia; and consul again in 229. Of the eighty books of Dio's great work Roman History, covering the era from the legendary landing of Aeneas in Italy to the reign of Alexander Severus (222-235 CE), we possess Books 36-60 (36 and 55-60 have gaps), which cover the years 68 BCE-47 CE. The missing portions are partly supplied, for the earlier gaps by Zonaras, who relies closely on Dio, and for some later gaps (Book 35 onwards) by John Xiphilinus (of the eleventh century). There are also many excerpts.
